Mayday Marina

By Ashley, 08/12/2009 6:20 pm

Finally, my painting titled Mayday Marina is dry enough to be hung in an exhibition at the Williams Gallery. Whilst painting this, I really wanted to capture some the energy of the busy yachts and the array of colours. I applied the paint thickly with big brushes and palette knives.

Ten Mile Bank viewed from Brandon Creek

By Ashley, 07/24/2009 1:04 pm

I painted this view, another in my Fenland Series,  of Ten Mile Bank near Brandon Creek in June. I painted this wet in wet with mostly a large brush as I rushed to capture the vivid blue fen sky and the morphing clouds.

New painting titled Fen Storm

By Ashley, 06/22/2009 3:51 pm

Fen Storm is a different painting to my recent work, it is painted with free , expressive and large brush strokes. I really enjoyed painting this and will work in this way on future paintings. I hope I have managed to capture the atmosphere off being caught in the storm – I got totally soaked during this storm.

Decided to show two of my paintings depicting avenue of trees and different times of the year.

June Avenue was painted a few months ago but is based on paint sketches made last year.

Autumn Avenue is also based on sketches made at Jesus Green, Cambridge last autumn. Both paintings are very influenced by Impressionism.

Watching paint dry

By Ashley, 06/16/2009 9:33 pm

I have paintings on the go, all at different stages, some very close to completion and others midway. However, they are all at a stage where they need to dry before I can continue.

Three are landscapes and two are abstract. Hopefully, I will post some pics of them soon.

Progress Green

By Ashley, 04/22/2009 10:45 pm

Just finished this experimental painting, it is painted in oils on canvas board, and in style sits somewhere between my abstract and fenland  landscape work. It is my way of expressing how I see some of my local landscape disappearing and being polluted. On the other hand, with engineering and sculptural background, I find the structures fascinating! And don’t get me wrong, I’m all for progress and I know many areas need regenerating and people need jobs but sometimes the development is not well thought through and with no regard to nature and the environment. Often, a petrol station pops up in the middle of the green belt, soon followed by other buildings: The station closes and then another pops up a few miles down the road and so the process continues. All the time eroding the landscape!
