Over the next few days I will be uploading new works on paper – watercolour, mix media, acrylic, pen and ink for an online show in The Mistletoe Tree.
July’s special offer is reduced price on both the A3 and A2 print “Along the Garden Wall” which is the image representing July in my 2017 calendar.
This months offer to celebrate Midsummer at The Mistletoe Tree is:
“The Cornish House”
This print is taken from a painting completed over 15 years ago when I first moved to Cornwall. It is a reworking of Lottie’s House, which was the home of one of my dearest friends who lives in Ticehurst in Sussex. It was an early commission and had to include their ancient cottage, the swans that flew overhead, the fish in the river Rother and Ticehurst church with its blue clockface.
The Cornish House is my own house here in Cornwall and the little window at the top is my studio. You can see Helston church on the hill and the river Cober flowing down to the sea. I think the little house below the church is The Blue Anchor tavern..
Both prints have always been best sellers and this is the first time I have been able to offer a large version.
The print measures 12 x 21.5 inches.
For the past few months I’ve been working on the front cover and interiors for Lauren St John’s fabulous book “The Snow Angel” published by Head of Zeus and due out 5 October this year. Once again I feel as if I have learnt masses – the interiors are worked on clayboard with Indian ink – a wonderful process I absolutely love. It is more suited to my painterly style than scratchboard and gives me license to shift and move the image around, maintaining movement and life.
