A painting in progress

So I've bought a new gadget which means I can literally hang my phone from anything and set it up to film a painting in progress.  And this is what I did this weekend and as it is time lapsed you can see me paint one of my larger paintings in just a few seconds.  It does take me just a little bit longer than this to actually complete the painting.   And here is the finished piece which is very dark and very moody but does remind me so much of the beautiful Yorkshire Moors.

Transfer paper

Last week I spent a whole afternoon adding some beautiful new colours to my stock of transfer papers.  Transfer papers allow me to make sketch type marks on my paintings and is basically a pigment rich version of carbon copy paper for those of you who can remember what that is!  This version uses pure pigment colour mixed in with denatured alcohol and painted on to wax paper.  Leave to dry (a matter of minutes) and it's ready to use and the beauty of making your own is that you can make your own colours!

So Saltaire Arts Trail has been and gone for another year.  A big thank you to all of you who were able to make the event, especially friends and family who came to provide support, cake and for taking us to the pub at the end of each day. If you didn't get chance to visit us then here's a little video of 6 Harold Place all set up and ready to go with my work in the kitchen and the fabulous Ian Burdall's work in the living room. We shall be back next year but the dates have changed...

Artworks opening

Artworks opening

So at the end of May my framers, The Artworks, had their official opening of their new premises in Otley. They have renovated a beautiful old building for their framing business and are incorporating a gallery and exhibition space.  I have some of my paintings on show to demonstrate their excellent framing skills: Fairfield Round and Wensleydale. Their opening night was on a very hot May evening and they had none other than the Brownlee brothers cutting the ribbon!  Very exciting!
