At the weekend Karl Terry invited a group of friends to join him for a day’s painting. He arranged access to a private stretch of the river at Rye in East Sussex then, in the evening, showed off his skills at the barbeque.
The 5 minute sketch above was the result of a challenge. We all went over the time limit – this one took me about 10 minutes.
The 20th Annual Venice in Peril Exhibition opens this week at W.H Patterson in Albermarle Street.
Over the years, this exhibition has contributed over £100,000 to the Venice in Peril Fund. The show features “a wonderful selection of beautiful paintings from many new artists as well as exceptional pictures from the palettes of our talented regulars”.
During the exhibition there is an opportunity to win a fabulous 5 star holiday to Venice sponsored by Kirker Holidays. The prize includes a stay at the Danieli Hotel and return journey to London on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. How cool is that?
It’s been a long time since my last trip on the Orient Express so, if you win the holiday and want to take an artist with you, well – you know who to ask…

Snow at Marlow, Oil on canvas, 20 x 36 inches
After a busy few days out painting the snow I have finally got round to photographing a few of my plein air paintings. All of these pictures were completed on location in one session. It’s been a great having such wonderful subject matter but the snow is now melting. I cant wait for the next cold snap.
I am very proud to be showing with the NEAC again this year. I have shown in this prestigious exhibition for the last 6 years. This year, for the first time, I sent in some little still life paintings to show that I do occasionally paint subjects other than my plein air landscapes. I was delighted that the judges liked them.
The day I painted these pictures I had gone in to my studio to paint a large picture from one of my location studies. But, as I looked at the dipper sitting on my palette I became intrigued by the way it seemed to blend in with it’s surroundings. Layers of old paint have built up over the years creating a patina-like finish on both the palette and the dipper. I realised that it could be painted by reproducing the colour, tone and shape of each mark.
These paintings and many of the others in the show can now be seen and purchased here.
