For those of you who have perhaps stumbled upon my bog and are not on our database, my Spring Exhibition starts on the 10th March at my Studio & Gallery at 17 Cheviot View in Ponteland. If you would like to start receiving postal invitations then please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01661 820 626 or 0771 874 1546.
The Spring exhibition continues until the 31st March. It features new original paintings of the North East, Italy and the Gulf. I’ve published a new limited edition print titled “Grey Street,Snow Shower” This new print can be purchased at the Gallery or online at www.alanreed.com. There will also be a number of portraits on view too.
Grey Street, Snow Shower is already proving to be a hit with our customers. The little girl in the red coat offers a splash of colour in this study of greys. The monochromatic tones are ideal for capturing the cold wet atmosphere of a winters day.
The simply painted figures provide movement. They describe a narrative of city life in winter before Spring becomes a reality. The little girl is my eldest granddaughter when she was just 4 years old. She provides a focal point. Positioning her just right of centre below the vanishing point emphasises the focus.
The new print is available in three sizes, the most popular being 495 x 345 mm. The deep edge mount really helps to provide depth to the print. The dark frame seen above works particularly well. Also a contemporary antique silver compliments the colours.
