The New English Art Club (NEAC) annual open exhibition opens on Friday 27th November. I am pleased to once again have work in this prestigious show. Early exhibitors in this exhibition include Claude Monet and Edgar Degas along with Walter Sickert, James McNeil Whistler, John Singer Sargent and Philip Wilson Steer.
Above: Stainforth Autumn Morning, oil on board, 4×10 inches.
If you can’t make along in person or want to make sure that special picture doesn’t get bought before you get there, most of the paintings in the exhibition can be seen and purchased online now.
Above: Newgale Beach, Pembrokeshire. 8 x 20 inches, oil on board
This painting will feature in my exhibition at Island Fine Arts in June 2011
I was back in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, last week. And, being a plein air painter, there was a lot of weather to contend with. Frequently the best painting weather – ie. when it wasn’t actually raining – came in the last hour or so before dusk. But working fast against the fading light in wild locations is one of the great things about being a landscape painter.
Above: Me painting after sunset on a calm evening at Newgale.
We visited artist Naomi Tydeman and walked our dogs on the beach and out to Monkstone Point at sunset before an unforgetable dinner. Later in the week we met up for a meal with thriller writer Scott Mariani at his country house in a secret location in the wilds of West Wales.
I snapped this shot of the figure above walking across the sand or was it the sky at Newgale Beach. Below is another view of the same wonderful beach.
Waterloo Bridge, oil on board 10 x 20 inches, 25.5 x 51 cm. Sold
The painting above is one of sixteen of my oil paintings of London, The River Thames and Surrey that will be on show in London for the rest of the month.
