Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair 2019

I am extremely pleased to have an entry accepted into the juried Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair, opening the 7th Nov and ending on 10th November 2019.

I am in excellent company, you can view the exhibitors at this link: http://www.woolwichprintfair.com/exhibitors-2019

You can buy tickets to the fair at 25% off (price will be £7.50) using code WCPF19 at this link: http://www.woolwichprintfair.com/tickets Offer ends on August 31st.

My entry is a photo-etching with chine-collé, of a courtyard at the Alhambra Palace. I have been lucky to visit this beautiful place on two occasions; the architecture is stunning; the decorative plaster work, mosaic tiles, wood and brick work, in repeat patterns, adorn every surface. Intimate rooms, graceful columns and archways lead you through to beautiful courtyards and gardens with splashing water features, a delight to the eye and mind.

I do hope some of you get the chance to visit this exhibition. I’m certainly looking forward to viewing the work up close, such a different experience seeing prints first-hand, as digital images don’t quite do them justice.

Weekly Sketch – Alhambra Garden View – 23/04/2017

At last a watercolour I feel okay with showing! I really like using watercolour, I often use it to colour drawings; but I’ve been trying to just use it on its own which I find a bit more difficult. Anyway I’m pleased with this A3 painting of steps from one green courtyard  leading down to another interior garden in the Alhambra Palace.
