I have been invited to exhibit at the Bishops Palace in Hereford

I am quite excited as I have exhibited at this lovely venue in 2012, 2013 and 2014. After the event was cancelled in 2015 it has been resurrected in a revised format in 2016. It is still known as the Palace Art-fest and run between Friday April 29th to May 2nd with the preview evening on Thursday 28th.
The exhibition coincides with Hereford River Carnival and the start of the Wye Valley River Festival and it is hoped will encourage a wider audience than in recent years, as well as regular supporters.
I will post more information as it comes to hand – really looking forward to it!

Another commission completed…

This commission was undertaken from a photo taken by my wife Cath in November. Cath took over 100 images and owner Helen and myself decided which best showed his character. He is 15 years old and Helen was delighted and nearly in tears when she received the completed painting for Christmas. As usual I spent a lot of time on the detail of the fur, whiskers, eyes and so on using pastel pencils, with soft pastel to fill in the background layers on Canson MiTientes Touch pastel paper.
