Watercolours at Cambo – last weekend of my exhibition

These are the remaining watercolours/mixed media paintings in my solo show at Cambo Gardens Visitor Stables, which I will be taking down on 30th September, unless marked as sold. Most of them I created plain air, and finished some of them off in the studio. All remaining artwork, both oils and watercolours, will be available via this website or instagram/facebook if you are interested but can’t get to the exhibition. Thank you for looking!

Cambo: Colour of Spring

Following my residency at Cambo Gardens in March and April this year, documenting the arrival of new growth in the gardens and surrounding estate, I am now preparing for the exhibition of my work completed on site and in the studio. This opens on Saturday.

Open 10am – 5pm daily, free entry, in the stables next to the cafe and shop.

Open Day Saturday 17th 11am – 3pm – I’ll be there to welcome you and able to answer any questions, and probably paint too! I may be at Cambo at other times to paint during the exhibition.

Painting workshop in the Cambo grounds with me on 21 September – all the details coming soon on the Cambo Gardens website. Lovely lunch included! Cambo Gardens Website

East Neuk Open Studios 2019

My studio gallery space is all set up for the second weekend – 29/30 June from 10:30am – 5:30pm here in Crail. Last weekend was busy, and this weekend is set to be even busier with the East Neuk Festival on in the area. I am also adding new paintings to my on line gallery on this site, and the Saatchi Art Online Gallery.

 

Cambo Artist in Residence

My first day at Cambo was full of sunshine and bright flowers emerging below fruit trees that are waiting to burst into leave and flower. There should be a succession of blossoms emerging over the next two months.  I  can tell that I am going to be inspired! Here are a few pictures of the walled garden at this time of year. If you’d like to follow my progress please look on instagram or facebook page or my account. Their website has details for visitors and as I have been visiting for a couple of years I know it is beautiful and colourful all year round. There is a tree-lined gully leading down to a sandy beach below, as well as the formal garden. At this point I’m not sure where the residency will lead me in my artwork because there is a huge choice of reference. As well as on insta/facebook I will leave a few images and examples of work, from day to day, in the stables next to the cafe at Cambo so if you can’t find me in the grounds or a I have retreated to my studio, there will be something to see.
