I've been painting out in the fields around Huttons Ambo in this boiling hot weather. Quite excited about this new work which has reached places I have never been before.
This is the first time I have painted on Gesso and I think there is no turning back. Also the first time I have painted on plywood. The boiling hot weather has added to the dramatic contrasts between light and dark.
So nice to stand in a field with hay between your bare toes, the sun beating on your straw hat, your eyes squinting to catch the shadows and the light. This new work will be exhibited at Staithes Studio Gallery for the month of August.
