This weeks Illustration Friday topic, obsession. I have been working on coastal paintings and prints for two years, this week my next obsession is unveiled  - sleeping long dogs.

Art Materials

I am starting a new series of Long Dog pictures.
But looking through my old sketchbooks, I can't decide which materials to use:
Black and white acrylic applied with my finger
Ink applied with a stick
Pen and wash

Seeing Red

Looking at my last post, the floor badly needed a top up. Make that two coats. The hounds are peeping over their cushions, pretending to be asleep, so I don't move their beds.

Hastings Old Town

Today was our day off.
We dropped off the dogs at 9am with our neighbour, and set off to Hailsham to collect my prints that had been exhibited at the dentist, went to the tip to recycle old TV, then onto a paint shop. Then off to St Leonards for TKMaxx. Onto Hastings to MADE to drop off greeting cards, strolled around the East Hill to see how the new Jerwood gallery is shaping up, took some snaps of the boats on the beach, then chased a few seagulls. Next Bexhill, paint shop number two, supermarket shop, followed by lunch at a burger bar... Back home by 3pm. Good fun.

Prospect Cottage, Dungeness

People say the most extraordinarily helpful things; "What I like about your paintings is the 'suggestion' of subject..." These two paintings are a 'suggestion' of Prospect Cottage. Both just sold, the shaggy garden from Arts Hut and gold from Avocet Gallery, Rye Harbour.

Digital TV

Some say he climbs mountains
Some say he connects with outer space
All we know is, he's called The Fixer

Blooming Sculpture

Established in 1946, Lime Cross Nursery, Herstmonceux has an enviable reputation for growing premier conifers, trees, shrubs, climbers, grasses as well as supplying an extensive range of plants and sundries for the discerning gardener. To celebrate the recent dramatic transformation of the site to include a shop and cafe, seven local artists have been invited to show their work. Curated by Karen Holbrook the exhibition is open daily until August 7th 2011.

(Mr PWP works with Lime Cross Nursery to develop their brand and I am busy promoting...)
