Lake Artists Summer Exhibition 2023

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.
