I haven’t told you about my painting day at the SOTA Gallery a few weeks ago…
All went well, Jen and Andrew the gallery owners were great and all the visitors seemed to enjoy seeing how I go about painting a portrait. The Prime Minister, David Cameron visited to officially open the gallery and we had a bit of a chat about some of the portraits in the House of Commons and the portrait Jonathan Yeo had done of him. He then invited me up for a tour of the House of Commons, which should be fun :)
I didn’t make that much progress on Natasha’s portrait while I was there…too many interesting people to talk to. But I did manage to get all the outlines done and I started on some of the shadow colour in the afternoon. Lots more to do :)

Here's the apple tree painting all framed up and ready for delivery to the gallery. It forms part of a solo exhibition I'm having at the SOTA gallery in Witney. The exhibition focuses on my 'forest' paintings, so sneaking this extra tree in felt right :-)
1st March - 8th March

Sorry it's been so quiet in here lately, I'm working really hard on the framing to get that business established...longer term this will hopefully give me more painting time...honest ;-) anyway, I'm not framing tomorrow, I'm in the SOTA Gallery in Witney doing a painting demonstration. I'll be working on the Natasha portrait...so I should make some progress on that which is long overdue. I'll be there between 10 and 4.30 so pop in and say hi if you're nearby.
I've been preparing some new painting boards today for an up and coming solo exhibition, also at SOTA, these are going got be an extension of the orange forest pieces...I'll post some pictures of those as they develop over the next couple of weeks.
Ok, off to sleep now, big day tomorrow...will tell you all about it soon... :-)
