This is my first painting complete for 2017. It feels like a pretty good start to work in what will be a busy year. I have some nice things lined up for the months ahead... and what I can tell you now is that there will be solo exhibitions from me in Cardiff in June and at Holt during September 2017. They really are favourite months for me to show my work and at two lovely venues. I feel very very lucky. I am also working on new paintings from around my home in Northamptonshire. Personal circumstances are not allowing me to drift further afield as was originally planned. However I am taking the opportunity to focus on the beautiful landmass surrounding me. It's been a while coming and I'm really looking forward to it. Illustrated above is one such piece and it depicts a favourite walk for me and the Joshthedog at Sywell Country Park.
I'd also like to thank you for supporting me here by either browsing, commenting, visiting my exhibitions and of course purchasing my work. You really have no idea how thrilled I get when works are sold.. ( It's a bit sad maybe at my age... but there you go:) Sales indeed allow me to keep on painting and doing the thing I love. So thank you very much and I plan to keep at it if that's ok with you.
Here's wishing you a happy and healthy 2017... and do keep in touch.

It's that time of year. The weather has been grey cold and wet. So to buck the trend here's some cheer. When things outside are grim I tune up the colour contrast and seek warmth. It looks a bit like this!
This painting along with 7 new Prouts shall be on offer at Bircham Gallery in Holt from 3rd December for their festive extravaganza! Don't miss out!

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.

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.

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.

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.. :-)

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!

As I was completing packing and wrapping for my next solo exhibition, storm Katie was raging around us. This painting seemed somewhat apt for a rainy Bank holiday.

...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
