instagram and autumn

As I am sitting in the exhibition I have some time on my hands and I have opened an instagram account and organised the dates for the autumn courses in my studio, These are one days practise either paint or a 3 hour session of drawing. It is in my studio in the Lot,  if you want to know the details please contact me.

I will have to see about the instagram – a new world open up!

Haras, near Lectoure

The inspiration for this painting was a visit two years ago to the Haras of a friend, there was all the paraphernalia of riding, horses and family in a lovely stone building. The life was both inside and outside, the light outside beckoned…..

Exhibition at Belaye 46140 South West France and I’ll be there every Sunday afternoon plus during the masterclasses in the church. An excellent afternoon out.

mysterious alley

In Albi, there is an alleyway where you tread in the steps of many who went before. I was glad there was electric light as well as daylight, an interesting space and atmosphere to experience. I love all the different textures and the many directions the light comes from.
.
This is a small oil on board 40 x 30 cm.

teaching at the studio

teaching201601sm
The classes have started with laughter and enjoyment and we have covered working with tone and disciplining the line. It is a haven of peace and concentration away from the madness of the world! Please contact me if you want to come along. Thursdays are possible.

who buys: statistics

Just for fun thought I’d analyse my sales over the last 7 years.
Of course I only know the clients that I have personally been involved with. Information on those who buy the paintings that are sold through galleries is very sketchy, but I have included what I know. One interesting phenomena is that someone who buys one often becomes a collector, which is really wonderful. This year someone bought five, a couple bought six, someone added a third to their collection. Most usually it is a ‘coups de couer’ when someone was not thinking of buying but spontaneously wants to own a painting they fall in love with. The prices have ranged from from 120€ to 2000€.

French buy the most (not surprisingly as I exhibit in France)
British come a close second ( again my contacts are mostly Britsish and we have a lot of British tourists in the Lot)
Americans are next, about half the number of British ,sales are through galleries mostly
The other larger group are Dutch clients
In single figures their are Danish, German and Belgiums and a gentlemam from Kuwait

S’il est nécessaire, il y aura une séance de peinture à l’huile sur un autre jour. S’il vous plaît laissez-moi savoir ce que domaines que vous souhaitez développer et renforcer.
