The Lake Artists Society Summer Exhibition 2023 will be held, as usual, at Grasmere Village Hall, Cumbria and run from July 28th until September 6th
In this year's exhibition I am exhibiting three works:
Via dei Bentaccordi oil on linen 600 x 450 mm £4000
I've worked on this oil painting, on and off, over several years. Up until recently this little street scene included eight people (down from 9 last year). This June I took out another 7 people - leaving only the elderly lady . . and a much quieter street!
I hope the the results of these changes make for a more reflective painting.
Salts Mill, Saltaire pen and ink 330 x 430 mm £1900
The drawing of Salts Mill in Yorkshire was made for 'Industrial Suite' - an album from jazz pianist, composer and arranger Jacky Naylor
Leander Crossing Crosby Garrett Viaduct charcoal 547 x 742 mm £2400
I saw this engine whilst cheering-on my daughter at a fell running event which began and ended at Crosby Garrett, Cumbria. The drawing was made for a charity auction which, unfortunately, had to be abandoned when Covid struck.
