Yesterday I delivered some paintings to the beautiful Ytene gallery in Brockenhurst, right in the heart of the New forest , Helen is busy preparing and I'm so excited that my solo show opens on Saturday.
So last year we discussed the possibility of creating a solo show in February, in time for half term and when visitors start to return to the New forest.
I delivered a whole selection of work inspired by the New forest.
Residents and regular visitors know that animals have priority in the New forest and can roam freely. Some of my favourite reference sketches and photos come from long walks in the forest, usually involving a pub lunch. My other photos come from pulling over on the side of the road, getting out and reaching for my camera, while a beautiful highland stands in the middle of the road watching the world go by. In fact A whole herd of cows tootling along the road is not uncommon when travelling through the forest.
The stags and deer are understandably more cautious and usually involve a longer lens to capture them! But again, regular visitors know the they are seen all the time.
'Wild woodland' celebrates the beauty of the animals in and around the New forest, the colours of the seasons and the joy of capturing these gorgeous creatures on canvas. The Ytene gallery can be found in Brookely Road, Brockenhurst. It's easy walking distance of the Carey's manor and Clouds Hotel (both wonderful places to eat or stay) and of course plenty of New forest pubs for those of us wanting a longer walk. So why not make a date during the half term holiday (and for a few weeks afterwards) to pop in and see some beautiful paintings in this lovely little gallery. A warm welcome awaits you.
