Win this small painted study, Oil on panel, 6inch x 6inch, painted 2013

As an artist, there are uncountable studies made in drawing, painting and sculpture. These studies were never meant for exhibition, instead they were painted to explore new ideas about subject matter, colour, form or simply because I found the subject interesting. Rather than let these studies go unappreciated, I’ve decided to launch a monthly competition open to all current and future followers of my blog.

So, what’s the catch?

Firstly, to be in with a chance of claiming this small study, I would like to see a visual or written response to one of my larger pieces. You might post your own sketch of a landscape which was triggered by viewing my painting, a short story or a piece of poetry which expresses feelings you received when viewing my painting.

Secondly, Postage to the Uk is free, winners selected from another country must pay postage costs.

It’s as simple as that.

All entires will be judged on originality and sensitivity.

Here is the image I would like to invite you to respond to……’The Driver’s Break’.

 Materials: Artist quality oil paints on gesso primed Canvas  Size (H x W x D): 50 x 50 x 2 cm  Year created: 2013 Handmade frame ready to hang, £399

Please get in touch if you would like me to clarify anything for you.

Best of luck to each of you!

P.s The winner will be announced on the last day of September. This should give you plenty of time to get your creative juices flowing. 🙂 Share with your friends!

    Hi Andrew, your picture inspired me to write the folowing :-

    Driver’s Break

    I do love my job, especially these fresh summer morning shifts. It’s just me and the world in total harmony and then, before you know it the families from hell with their screaming kids and ice creams descend on us and ruin it all.
    The sea air at this time of the day is so vitalising, in fact it’s just as refreshing as that first pint I had in the Transport club last night.
    You can’t wish for much better than this, on the sea front at Scarborough – truly God’s own country.
    The whoosh of the waves, the smell and taste of the sea carried on the breeze, even the seagulls haven’t woken up yet. You can feel the goodness this is doing – ‘breathe it in’ I remember my old mum saying, ‘it’ll do you good.
    The spray at high tide can catch you out a bit if you’re not careful, made me jump a time or two, I’ve been sat in the cab with wet pants more than once.
    Across the bay the old lighthouse keeps an eye on the town like a centurion. Some days it looks so distant, almost on the horizon others you could just reach out and touch it, and then, when the sea frets roll in it can fade away completely. The weather plays tricks on the eyes, teasing your senses, no two days are alike here, I like that.
    We used to live in Leeds 50 years ago, and come down here on a coach bank holidays.
    We’d find a spot on the beach and stay there all day with sandwiches and flasks of tea. My mum would be knitting a sweater while dad did the Mirror crossword or read Titbits. It’s all changed a bit since then and a lot more blooming expensive now. Things are brighter and more colourful these days, even the buses have had a new lick of paint or two since then.
    Dad used to enjoy smoking his pipe on the top deck waving at folks like royalty as the bus slowly went past on the Foreshore promenade. Ash used to blow everywhere, he often had burn holes in all his best shirts and jackets – he used to blame it on moths, but mum weren’t having any of that.
    Look at me now, I live here and even drive one of these things, and if I want a smoke I have to get off and smoke on my break, just like now when there’s nobody even onboard. Sign of the times, health and safety gone mad, dad would say as he coughed and spluttered with his pipe, trying not to set fire to everything around him.
    Mind you, having to get off the bus for a smoke gives me chance to stretch my legs when I’ve been sat behind this wheel all day. I have about a five minute turnaround at each end – here at the Spa and over at the Corner Café in North Bay. It’s just enough time to light up a Park Drive, one of life’s few remaining pleasures.
    Ah well, time I wasn’t here, off back to North Bay.
