It’s quite an exciting time at the moment in the studio. I have multiple paintings on the go, which is definately the way that I like to work best. In amongst some painting commissions (thank you! it keeps me going), I am working on paintings for upcoming events for Braewell Galleries as well as just for the hell of it.
THe pic sows me dwarfed by the latest in my kilt art series and this is by far and away the largest artwork which I have ever worked on. The canvas measures 5 x 3 feet and it has been an odd experience as you completely lose a sense of scale and perspective This could, therefore end up with outsized hands and feet etc so as I say, it could be interesting.
At the WASPS studios in Hanson Street there has been a lot of activity as several artists have decided to move to the new studios at the Briggait, which has just recently opened. I have deliberately not had a look at the place as I want minimum distraction over the next while and the thought of moving would be just that. Good luck to the artists who are moving there though, it is a stunning building and was a favourite haunt of mine when it was open in the 80s.
