It's been a while...




Hello... I have a selection of 6 new and recent works coming up on show commencing 16th March.

It's been quite a while since I've shown in my home county, so I'm really looking forward to this.
I'll post more information next week but here is a flavour of what to expect from me.

Other exhibiting artist are quite fabulous and I feel very lucky to be sharing some space alongside.
The venue is Deene Park, Deene and hidden in the scruffy ol wilds of Northamptonshire. A packed lunch, wellies and compass maybe be useful... But well worth the effort I can assure you

Here is a piece I finished framing today and will available to view at Deene

90x90cm plus frame...

For that special moment...




Hello...  here is an opportunity to clinch a Prout original artwork direct from the studio. It’s an ideal gift if you need a special gesture, starting a collection or simply treating yourself.

The new painting illustrated is on top quality gesso primed paper. The acrylic painting is varnished, signed verso and fixed to 4mm hand painted mdf.

The unique artwork is 150mm x 100mm and the back panel is 350mm x 300mm.  The idea is that you can pop down to your local framer and drape the work with a moulding / finish of your choosing.

My introductory price of £170.00 is inclusive of registered postage in mainland UK. International territories will incur appropriate postage fee at cost price

Please note: These original works are only available from me direct and will not be available in galleries.



There is limited stock so if you are interested in a purchase feel free to email me or drop me a message via Facebook, Twitter etc... or an old fashioned phone call will do too!

Painting title: Calm after the storm

Now Sold
Thank you
Chris

Hello






































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.

Cheers
Chris

Climate control


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!

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.. :-)

Kicking up a Katie






















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.
