A YouTube video: ' PAINTING DARTMOOR - Pastel Landscapes..'

I have learned a lot with this first attempt. I hope to be posting more soon, and perhaps do some pastel technique tutorials and some 'speed painting' (time lapse) videos of new work.

Here is the link to my first:

Delamore Arts 2013 - Exhibition at Delamore House, Cornwood, Devon during May

I have these four paintings on show in this beautiful exhibition venue, which is hosting a mixed show of sculpture and paintings. This is a fantastic venue to visit. You can stroll around the grounds looking at the amazing variety of sculptures and then view the paintings inside the grand rooms in the house. The show lasts for all of May. There is an entry fee, but it is well worth it and money raised is going to Charity. For more information you can visit the website at delamore-art.co.uk. The chosen charity this year is Jeremiah's Journey.

Calendar success and plans for next year

I am pleased to say the Calendar was a real success and sold out. Next year I will produce a new one to include new work from the coming year. In fact I may do at least two - one with Landscapes, and one with seascapes/coastal scapes.

Also for next year I hope to make this site busier, putting more of my work up, adding more information and providing a facility to buy prints and cards direct from here - if I can make the technology work. So watch this space; there may be interesting developments!

Thanks to everyone who bought calendars and to everyone who visited in 2011.
