Bolton Art Circle activities have dominated my week - getting the advertising and publicity material prepared for our 2012 exhibition season. Well that all seems to be in hand now so I can get to my art works on my easel;
Landscapes of the Beamish valley - from photos and sketches from my holiday.
Venice Nights - my chosen project in creative watercolour class - sketches done - drawing work underway
Abstract - based on the work of Mondrian which I'm thinking will be one of my entries ...

The idea for Leaves Falling came from an Autumn workshop I recently attended and a class on stylised flowers. I put the 2 together and created some stylised Autumn Leaves. Finished last week on a visit to the Beamish Valley where the Autumn Colours were in their full glory.
On holiday this week in the beautiful Beamish Valley in Northumberland. I have my paints with me and have completed a sylised autumn leaves picture - inspired by the wonderful colours here. I've taken lots of photos and have drawn up the outline for a painting of the valley. Watch this space.

Today I've submitted 2 paintings into the Bolton Library and Museum Services - Open Art Exhibition 2011. Rocky Sunset Shore and Seashells & Starfish. This is only the 2nd time I've done this.

I'll be delighted if I actually get a painitng into the exhibition and if not - well another experience as I venture out into the art world on my own.
Update 11th Nov - didn't get either painting into the...
