Wow! My first shot at entering the ROI annual exhibition hosted by the Mall Galleries, London. I submitted two works initially, both of which were preselected for final selection. This self-portrait is the painting that made it through to the exhibition. The exhibition opens on the 2nd of December at the Mall Galleries, London.
This is probably one of my most robust oil paintings to date. Although application of paint is loose, the painting is rooted fully in observation, looking with focus at colour, form and light.
I’ve been extremely busy over the past few months, not least with the latest arrival to my family, baby Eden Elizabeth Farmer (now 2 weeks old!). I look forward to updating my new website with my latest paintings as well as creating some blog entries to inform all of my wonderful followers of my recent activity.
Than you as always for your much appreciated support.
