Today is the first day of my “64 pictures in 64 days” project! For each of the sixty four days leading up to my next birthday, I shall be creating a picture a day. Each picture will be 8″ x 8″ (do the math!) and for sale for the duration of the project (unframed + P&P) for £64 each. I don’t have a master plan for what each picture will be. However, I do intend that all the pictures will be painted “alla prima” or drawn direct from the subject. They are most likely to be landscapes or (depending on the weather and time of day) small still lives set up in the studio. On occasion, the picture may be a figure study done at one of the life drawing groups I help to run. If you would like to purchase any of the pictures or book one in advance, they will all be available on a “first come, first served” basis. NB. Since announcing the project during my open studios weekends in May, some of the dates have already been reserved. Please check for available dates if you are thinking of booking one.
The first picture is, fittingly, the view over the fence at the end of our back garden. I love this view over a drain that connects directly to the River Waveney just beyond the footbridge. It was raining and pretty windy today and I spent a fair bit of the 2 hours on this one holding onto an umbrella and stopping my easel being blown over!. I do expect to return to the view more than once before 29th September (the day before my birthday).
The pictures will all be located in a new gallery here.
