A Winter Wonderland of Art in the Woods

A Winter Wonderland of Art in the Woods

Oxfordshire artist Graham Rice will be holding a Winter Exhibition at Cuckoo Lane Art Studios from November 27th to December 18th.

This will be Graham's first exhibition since opening his Studio and Gallery at Cuckoo Lane earlier this year. It offers visitors a chance to see his latest swirling watercolours, including a number of new local scenes, along with a contemporary series of oil paintings which combine Gold and Silver leaf with traditional oil painting techniques to produce works that sparkle with life.

Alongside the Gallery is Graham’s charming Studio, which gives the opportunity to see just how his artwork is created. All manner of artistic equipment is on display and the artist is happy to explain how they are used to develop his diverse pieces of artwork.

If all this creativity inspires you to want to have a go yourself, you can sign up for one of the many art workshops that are currently being held at Cuckoo Lane Art Studios, including an ‘Introduction to Linocuts’ being run by Graham himself.

The Winter Exhibition is on from Saturday 27th November to Saturday 18th December at Graham’s Studio & Gallery, Cuckoo Lane Art Studios, Eynsham Park Estate, Cuckoo Lane, North Leigh, Witney, OX29 6PW. Open hours are Thursday, Friday & Saturdays 10 – 6.

Moonlit Square Eynsham - Drawing

I’ve started on a new watercolour of the square in Eynsham today. Just at the drawing stage at the moment, but it’s going to be a night time scene, hopefully with some interesting lighting coming from the doorways of the church and Bartholomew Rooms.
Posters for the Winter Exhibition starting to go up today (16 days to go…) and website beginning it’s overhaul, so all in all a busy day :)

The Stag and the Moon - Finished

Here’s a final print of ‘The Stag and the Moon’ and a drawing stage photo of a new watercolour ‘St Peter’s Church Eynsham’.
I’ve used silver and aluminium leaf on the stag prints which was an interesting experience…printing with gilding size is a sticky business…:)
