Sue has got me a space at National Grid Headquarters in September on their Market Street (yes, they have their own little shopping area).
I've got hold of some proper exhibition boards and a collapsible table.
I've also had some A5 leaflets printed...
All this means I've got to speed up the production line to get more pictures done...American Cocker Spaniel and then next one up will be a tabby cat...
Photo of picture is a bit crap but hey ho
Hello all. To try to drum up more business I've decided to put together a portable 'show area' that I can take to events like dog shows, county shows and craft fairs etc.
Trouble is all my original paintings are with the customers that commissioned them. I obviously can't go knocking doors every couple of weeks asking for it back for a bit.
I always photograph my pictures but the results are not always the best.
Some I have managed to blow up to A3 and laminated but only a few.
This means I have got to paint a few just for my 'portfolio'.
The first one was the Cougar. Not a pet but still an animal. Just a bit of variety for me. (here is some advice; if you search google for some reference pictures put 'mountain lion' not 'cougar'!!)
I will update this blog now and again with any work in progress and, if there is any interest I will explain some of my techniques.
