Something Different

Sorry it’s been so long since I last wrote on my blog.  It’s been a mixture of being stuck ( having broken down) in France over the holidays and being incredibly busy with the PTA at my son’s school.

Well I’m back now and with something slightly different.  I have been given the opportunity to display my work with two other artists in my local cafe in Clapham/Battersea called Il Molino.  Their will be a collection of work up during November and December,  pieces that are affordable for easy Christmas present options for local customers.  This has given me a great opportunity to do something slightly different.

I visited The Mall Gallery last week with a great friend and was thoroughly inspired by some beautiful work on wildlife.  The artists there captured their subject so well, showing all the wonderful characteristics in so many different mediums.  I have a great interest in wildlife and this exhibition gave me the inspiration to try something different.

London is full of crows.  However much people dislike them there is a huge presence everywhere you go.  They have a sinister beauty about them.  Their vicious beaks and sleek dark feathers give them an evil edge but one that deserves respect.  The exhibition at The Mall Gallery and walking through Clapham Common inspired me to have a go at painting these wonderful birds.  I really enjoyed working with some really inky blues and wonderfully deep dark blacks.  I was pleased with the outcome and very chuffed to see that others liked them too on Instagram.  What do you think?

I’m going to explore some more in this medium and subject matter in and around my normal work.
