A few pictures from my exhibition in Unit 9, South Square gallery, Thornton. This was inspired by a painting hoilday in Wales. Maggie Brown, the artist/ teacher encouraged us to collect information in sketchbooks and, perhaps, photos and then create pictures in the studio. This challenged my orthodoxy that landscapes should be painted in the landscape - although i have, of course, always created the textile picture in the studio. The pictures are watercolours with some fabric overlays and stitched onto the paper
Here are some pictures from my current exhibition at South Square Thornton. The exhibition was about a stunning January morning when I took my new camera out. The colours were bright and beautiful. I think I got some bright and beautiful colours into the pictures - if not entirely accurate ones.
The sisters show was enormously enjoyable. Our work was of course both different and similar. I admired the straightness of Phillida's straight lines and she liked my more haphazard stitching. We both sold and, even more delightful, sold similar amounts. We plan to repeat the experience in Canada in June 2016
