BowfellI'm making some preparations for my coming Exhibition which starts this Sunday 23rd September at The Yurt Gallery. It is located between the Tea Room and the Campsite within the beautiful grounds of the old Rydal Hall Estate. The opening times are between 10am and 5pm daily until 30th September 2012. I'm hoping to set up a painting space where I can work in the warmth of the woodburning stove. Unless we have a late heatwave! Fingers crossed.

An early start on a Monday morning took me onto the fell to exercise, but not just walking. After finding a nice spot to sit down (a great start to a sunny Monday morning), I shut my eyes for a couple of minutes, opened them and immediately started to draw. With biro held loosely I started to translate onto paper what my eye quickly picked out. The emphasis was not to look down at the paper until I'm done drawing. I didn't allow myself to use any other materials other than a biro and a bit of scrap paper.
Quite an interesting image, and not too disappointing.
The second attempt, I peeked a little.
Third attempt - Totally cheated by peeking, and using graphite and watercolour.

A Future painting
I've just launched my new look website to show off my prints which are now available. An Exhibition is planned in the near future at the Mill Yard Studio - Staveley. Dates to be confirmed. Meanwhile, don't forget to checkout my new blog which is directly attached to my site.
