Castle exhibition 'The Call of the Sea' held in Bude

A very busy Spring and early summer with open studios. As Baamfest workshop organiser and with other projects, my Castle exhibition, Bude in July was looming fast. Painted almost entirely in two months, I fully immersed myself into my artwork.

Having the large studio at Wooda, gave me the space and time to bring this collection together with some very large finished pieces but also with some large sketchy vignette style paintings in mixed media.

Large paintings

Large pieces were supported by ink and oilbar sketches. With so many different styles I thought it was going to be a nightmare to hang, but I was very pleased with the result and after a very social preview where all the booze was drunk, over the following three weeks sold eight pieces of work ?.

The remaining pieces will be available to view in the studio from next week on. I’m taking the weekend away to enjoy Port Eliot Festival. More news on this next week.
