Warwickshire Open Studios 2016

By karen, May 20 2016 06:48AM

So I have decided to show off my new work space by taking part of the Warwickshire Open Studios. It seemed like a good idea at the time of entry. However, with four weeks to go and very little work accomplished I am now beginning to panic!

I am best known for my 'Lowryesque' style of painting but as these paintings take weeks to complete and also because I wanted to show I can do other things, I am busy painting all manner of different subjects, using different techniques... mostly quick painting with a pallet knife and lots of paint. It's fun. I am enjoying myself. But I'm not sure what my followers will think of this departure from the norm.

Here are a couple of examples which will be on show in my studio from the 18th June - 3rd July.
