'It’s been a busy few months. In May 2012 I organised a return painting trip to Sennen in Cornwall with a group of plein air painting pals. It was great to have Andrew King ROI and some of his art friends from Norfolk join in all the fun! June was marked by a painting session for the Diamond Jubilee Pageant with the BBC on the Millennium bridge. Weather wise, it was a complete washout but we stuck it out and I was pleased to get two paintings done on the day.
" Over the summer I’ve been out and about painting on location, particularly enjoying some local allotment studies. With work shown at the Hawker Gallery in Amersham (ROI, Marine and Heritage exhibitions) and the ‘Best of the Bath Prize’ show with the Bath Gallery, attention then turned to the 2nd annual show with the ‘Plein air brotherhood’ at the A&K Wilson Gallery in Harpenden (October 2012). I was also delighted to have two plein air paintings accepted into the Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries (October 2012). In November a group of us are heading back to Venice for a week of painting around the great city. Can’t wait!'
Here are a couple of smashing paintings from David. Lovely work!
