Studying Sunflowers

My daughter Ruth bought a lovely bunch of sunflowers this week. I have been enjoying looking at them, taking a few photos and doing some sketches.

We also had a sunflower self seeded in the path at the front of the house, it seemed right to leave it to flower.

As the weather is getting colder, the sunflowers bring a sense of warmth and summer in the house.

I used my water colour pencils and pen and ink for the sketches and some digital processing for the photographs.

Viking Gallery Exhibition, Thanet Selfies.

My two seascapes in white frames.
I am pleased to have two pictures in the Viking Gallery Exhibition, Thanet  Selfies  Two of my colourful seascapes are hanging in the gallery.

The opening was on Saturday 3rd and I enjoyed seeing all the art works and chatting to some of the other artist exhibiters.

There is a good variety of styles of work and mediums, and it's a great space to show work.  Apparently one of the previous uses of the building was as Turkish baths, and one of the huge metal furnace doors is in the exhibition space, which adds to the character.

The gallery is open Thursday to Sundays 12-6pm and the exhibition is open for a few weeks.
