The 31 days of August

I have a little project going on which can be viewed on my facebook page. It's about random visual thoughts and musings through our month of August 2016. It's likely to be the basis for a long awaited studio exhibition.

Illustrated here are some of the work so far.... and you can find the FB page here https://www.facebook.com/chrisprout.artist.painter  Feel free to say hello and join in.

Breathe in.......... and .......























I did a spot of sketching at a favourite location of mine. I love the speed and simplicity of line and wash. One can record so much information in rapid time. It's a fun and really relaxing way to unwind after a busy and hot week.

Topiary art







































This week I've been working on scaling up a recent study panel inspired by the
Pembrokeshire coast. I'm really happy with this... and as you can see I use all manner of tools to make my marks. Some say my art is cutting hedge stuff.

On show and at rest...








































I have 5 new pieces on display at the Bircham Gallery in Holt, Norfolk commencing
this weekend. (14th May) There are some top flight practitioners on show and I feel very lucky to be rubbing shoulders with them all.

If you are interested in seeing my work in a gallery situation it's probably wise to inform you that I have decided to rest from showing as a 'solo artist' for the time being. I shall however be showing in group exhibitions with my galleries and other events.

2017 will see me return and exhibitions are already booked.. :-)

Blooming lovely







































We had a blooming lovely launch of my exhibition at the Robert Fogell Gallery in Stamford yesterday. So many visitors and thank you very much to all. I had little time to take pictures on this occasion, hopefully more soon. The gallery looks a treat and well worth a visit.

The exhibition continues until 30th April Tuesday - Saturday

Spring is in the air...






































It's that time of year.. The sun is beaming, birdies are chirping, the air is fresh and I'm up with the larks. This picture seems just right for today!

It's on display tomorrow at the launch of my exhibition. I hope you can get along at some point.

A lovely way to start the week...






















I sketched these yesterday whilst walking around the lovely village of Cranford. It was so warm and spring like for an hour or so.

Once upon a time...





...I used to do a 'lot' of architectural work.. painting, visualising and thinking about the workings of it all. Then for a long, long ol time, I didn't!... Now I am again, 'that's life!'

Here is a doodle from the weekend.. #Arefreshingchange
