Back on track….my first solo exhibition

Purbeck Art Weeks run an opportunity to exhibit art in the cafe at RSPB Arne. I booked a spot 18 months ago and of course then just got on with everything else. This morning a week on from the intended start date (subject to illness) Jenny Hawkes took her exhibition down and I put mine up. Some new skills including how to use a hanging system (not my budget version used for Artisans on the Beach and my PAW Open Studio).

So a sunny start and I came out to great scenes from home.

Then it was off to Arne across Middlebere and HartsMoor. I stopped to watch the ponies on route.

Once Jenny’s pictures were taken down it was my turn. 11 pieces including a range of original pieces and giclée prints ranging from £35 to £250. If you visit and would like to buy a piece the RSPB will accept cash payments. To pay by card – contact me on andy@andyknillart.com.

Here is the view then zooming in from the counter in the cafe towards my pieces.

How many pens still work?

Any excuse for some colouring in saw me last night doing my second full promarker collection audit linked to my annual order window. Keeping in mind the demands of a coloured set of overalls to advertise the Santa Over… series and some examples of the new colours launched at the start of September.

The next challenge which will need even more than the A2 pad used here will eventually be the colour layer chart to show what colour combinations can be made using the 160+ colours available to me.

So tomorrow offers the chance (subject to delivery) for a test of the new colours and an updated colour chart that I can take to the school on Monday (see previous post).
