Swindon Open Studios 2015-Weekend 2

We had a nice turnout last weekend for the Swindon Open Studios 2015. We had around 100 visitors coming to have a look at our work and ask questions which was nice. I did not take many pictures I'm afraid. However, I'm happy to say I was able to rework and finish some pieces which I had started a while back. These originally were all on one large sheet of watercolour paper. I decided which parts I wanted to keep then I sectioned them off and created four separate pieces which were then adhered onto streatched canvas.
Here is a sketch I did on Sunday. 
The exhibit will come down on Sunday, 27 September so if you have not had a chance to see it, I would recommend a visit to the Central Library.
Bye for now.

Swindon Open Studios 2015 -Weekend 1

Here are some of the photos I took of this weekend's Swindon Open Studio Tour. We had a nice turnout-around 100 visitors over the two days. Thanks to all my friends and family who came to see me, it really meant a lot to me. 

 The work on the wall is an exhibition of most of the artists exhibiting at the Central Library. It will remain there till the end of September, so those who could not come down during last weekend and this one coming up, can stop by during library hours and take a look. The three colourful pieces on the end are mine.

 These are some of my other mixed media art I've been working on for a couple of months.
I will put them on my website as soon as I can-
Here is my son Luke surfing on my iPad. 
These are some sketches I started over the summer.
 These paintings are also by the artists in the Swindon Open Studios. They are hanging outside- Windows Gallery Number Nine.
Mine is the small one of the woman on the right, you can see my reflection in the window as I am taking the picture :-).
I will be at the Central Library this Saturday from 10-4pm and Sunday from 11-3pm.
Bye for now.
