Painting at Fiddleford Manor

21st June 2016

A pleasant day painting with Bruton Art Society at Fiddleford Manor, Sturminster Newton, Dorset. Overcast unfortunately & so nearly rained but still worth doing some small oil sketches as it was a beautiful place to be.

As you might guess the sun came out towards the end of our time there.

I shall go back to admire the bare rooms of the manor & to paint again (properly!) another day.

The Stour was apparently 10ft higher than usual & not far off the level of the field. 

Good to be in the countryside amongst other painters but the day went too quickly

Bruton Art Society Exhibition 15 - 30 August 2015

19th June 2015

This is a very active local art society's annual exhibition - a mixture of amateur & professional work. It is always a well presented show. I hope to have some work there this August.

Earlier in the year I was made a committee member but that does not ensure my work will be accepted for exhibition.

If you are looking to buy good affordable art please contact me for a preview invitation

Bruton School for Girls, Bruton BA10 0NT.  15-30 August.  Daily 11-5
