ING Discerning Eye Exhibition

Oct 27, 2021
























I am really pleased to have two small paintings selected for the 2021 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at The Mall Galleries, London. 11-21 November. They received close to 7,500 entries from artists around the UK ‘the quantity and quality of submissions was outstanding, and yours caught the eye of our selectors’ I like to think that they caught the eye of Russell Tovey  🙂

Painted in the winter of lockdown. Framed 40 x 40 cm  £430

This is four from a series of six small collage paintings (24 x 18 cm ) framed 35 x 29 cm. I really enjoyed working with a limited palette in the frosty winter and early spring days here in the UK.

Urban marks

Jan 9, 2021

At last, I feel that I am getting my mark making to speak back to me. Phew! This has taken quite a few weeks of searching and pushing. It is so hard, at the moment, to work out how we feel, and if is due to the outside world, or the wrong colour paint!

For many days my work felt heavy and laboured, I was putting in many hours, but I wasn’t getting anything back; no excitement, no buzz. Working on a big scale wasn’t helping either, there was a fair bit of bending, stretching and wrestling with unstretched canvas in a small space. So this week I went back to small, 8 inch square pieces on paper, with a limited palette. Oh, a touch of happiness came through! I was in the zone, I could feel the subject/theme.

The urban coastline is always there.
