'Seagull, Eigg Island' Acrylic on 20x15" canvas

‘Seagull, Eigg Island’ Acrylic on 20×15″ canvas

The above are paintings completed so far for the upcoming exhibition (only 10 to go!)

‘Seagull’ is an experiment in a more simple style, I sense people may prefer the more detailed work, but this was enjoyable – just focusing on colour really

Also, this painting below is a private commission of Croy Beach, which was a nice change of scene!

I really enjoyed the Gallery Ten exhibition ‘WEST the west coast and beyond’ today. Beautifully curated by gallery owner Paul Musgrave – I thought the pieces went very well together.

Thanks to Gallery Ten for putting together a really lovely show!

 

 

 

Work in progress for Whitespace..

P1120650 P1120649Moving on to canvas now – these are 20×16″. It feels strange not to be working on wood

 

 

 

 

 

I’m not quite sure where I’m going with these drips but I’m liking the effects which aren’t possible on a 5×5″ scale

 

 

 

The above paintings in progress are the first in a series to be included in the July exhibition at the Whitespace Gallery.

In the meantime, WEST; The West Coast and Beyond is showing this Saturday between 2 – 4pm, hope to see you there! PV-combo-wb

It’s going to be an interesting day, and afterwards the Leith Late festival will be featuring various exhibitions and live events..
