Photos from Patchings Art Festival 2017

I’m on my way back north to Skye, though it’ll be a few days yet before I’m in my studio again. I’m buzzing from the enjoyment and excitement of Patchings Art Festival followed by an unexpected invitation to the just-opened Gallery 6 in Newark-on-Trent on Monday morning.

(Long story short: you can now find my two brand-new floral still-life paintings and seascape inspired by Coral Beach — the big paintings I had at Patchings — in Gallery 6! I’ll share some photos later.)

Flower painting demo. I liked it early on, then overworked it, then tried to rescue it with black ink. It’s not resolved yet, but I will have another go back in my studio.

My second flower-painting demo, done on Sunday. I like where it is, but suspect it still needs a little more.

Seascape inspired by Talisker Bay, demo painting. It’s needs another round or two, but I stopped painting on it as I need to do it without stopping to chat.
Patchings Fellow Artists
I had the pleasure of being able to watch Jenny Aitken and Stephen Walton paint (with acrylics) and draw (with charcoal) over the four days.

My thanks to everyone for four fun-filled days, all the interesting conversations, and your enthusiasm. See you next year (except for those who I know I’ll be seeing sooner at Higham Hall!).

Were you at Patchings? What was your favourite thing? What art supplies did you get (mine included some new acrylic ink colours and a handful of Rosemary & Co rigger brushes). Leave a comment and let me know.
