Moorland Painting - Commission/Present

This week I been working on a landscape painting for my sister inlaw. I offered her a painting for her recent birthday and she wanted one that represented the local landscape. She gave me some rock samples from her favourite place, described how she liked the place at dusk when the moon has a halo of light. So I took this and put through the buxton-landscape-filter! Here's the result. I am pleased with the effect. I will be taking around to her tomorrow. Hope she doesn't read this and see it before the unveiling!

Solo Exhibition:Opening

Had a very successful opening day for my solo exhibition at the Little Gallery in Belper. Attendance was good and included support from friends and family. Anna and Richard the gallery owners made us feel at home supplying with gallons of tea throughout the day!

It was a good opportunity to meet up with the recent buyer of my "Dark Moor" painting, talk to him about painting and also to meet his family, his daughter bought one of my paintings on the day. Later in the day I sold a print and one of favourite "Corpus Veneer" paintings called "Blood Rush". All in all very enjoyable day, see pictures below.
