I enjoyed a productive few weeks painting in Italy this summer. Working in and around the historic cradle of plein-air painting, Civita Castellana, and as an Artist in Residence of the world renowned JSS in Civita summer school, I was in the ideal setting to find a way into the landscape genre. I managed a portfolio of quick oil sketches, as planned, but am impatient to go back and explore things more deeply. Still, several of my first impressions are on show in the Edinburgh Drawing School Winter Exhibition…
…and a handful more will be in The McGill Duncan Gallery Winter Exhibition (click link to see all available work) in Castle Douglas, Opening November 7th.
The show will also include some recent still life and portrait work.
I’ll be giving a live portrait demo at the opening from 11am, so get yourself to Castle Douglas!
