THE HEARTLAND OF SEFTON – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1020418(1)I felt I needed one more painting for my exhibition to complement the other mixed acrylic I did see below. So this one is the last – well for the exhibition at least.

In fact this one above is a further adaptation of the painting I originally posted which I felt was a bit garish, ( see below)  but once you got those acrylics on there’s not much you can do.

P1020405(1)So this one got gessoed over and I did the top painting on this and then  repeated it in more muted colours on another canvas.

So that’s thirty one landscape paintings for the exhibition. I’m now sorting out the frames and tweaking a few of the paintings and we should be ready to go. I’m not holding out much hope on this exhibition, but this is the first time I’ve amassed this amount of paintings for one exhibition on a single topic, so it will be a good exercise if nothing else.

The exhibition is called ‘Between the Mersey and Ribble’ and is a set of paintings based on the area. The Mersey and the Ribble are two rivers which come out on the coast around here – you may have heard of one of them.  It is on at the  Martin Mere Wetland Centre for a month from 19th of this month.

TWO CHURCHES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTINGS

I continue building up some long format paintings for an upcoming exhibition. I decided on doing a couple of local churches. The top one is Sefton Church. It is a view I’ve done before. I sold the first one in an exhibition at the town hall. Later I got a phone call asking for another painting of Sefton church as the mayor of Sefton wanted a present for a foreign visit, but they didn’t seem to like my other views of the church – well I didn’t hear from them again.

The other church is St Marys at Little Crosby, again from across the autumnal fields, but this time there is a little bit more detail as the light is coming from the right.
