Some of you may have attended my watercolour classes at my Studio & Gallery in Ponteland. You may remember in one of my demonstrations I showed you how to paint skies and trees. As an example I did some paintings in the style of Rowland Hilder who is one of my early watercolour heroes. He was an expert at painting Watercolours of Kent, particularly in winter.
Artist Support Pledge
You may have seen in my last blog post that I am supporting the Artist Support Pledge. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress Martin Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge
My two paintings that are available for £200 each unframed are:
- The Lane, Kent after Rowland Hilder
- Oast Houses, Kent after Rowland Hilder
They are both (unframed) 11.5″ x 8.5″ image size and have been painted in watercolour.
The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artists work.
