Effortless Brushstrokes

A Cotswold Forge
Oil on board 90.5 cm x 68 cm
(or £99.50 per month with own art)
Last night was the Private View at Beside The Wave gallery and then on to the Private View at Falmouth Art Gallery.  This is my painting that is now hanging in the Falmouth Art Gallery along side some wonderful paintings by great names.  It was a lovely duo of opening nights and I felt very honoured to be exhibiting with old masters and some of my contemporary younger masters as well including:  Andrew Tozer, Miles Heseltine, Ben Warner, Phil Hogben, Paul Wadsworth and Chris Rigby.
The painting above is another from the forge, this time in oils and larger and here is the little plein air study that I made while the blacksmith was working.  The study forms part of the exhibition at Beside the Wave.
Oil on board 14.5 x 18 cm
(or £24.50 per month with own art)
They are both framed with a simple but substantial gold frame and available from Beside The Wave, who also do Own Art, which lets you pay in 10 interest free monthly instalments, a fantastic scheme!
The exhibition runs until April 14th and is well worth a visit.
