End of exhibition and 'Kimono Continued'...

Thanks to everyone who came to the Kingston Market House 'Creative Minds' exhibition this week. We had a fantastic time, had lots of interesting conversations with various members of the public and got some painting done too. My idea of the perfect week!

'Kimono Continued'...
So, I started working on the embroidered effect on the sleeve fabric this morning and got most of the embroidery painted. I'm really please with how it's turned out so far.
I plan on completing the patterns on the fan and the background next week after I return from Spain.

Kimono Continued...

Another lovely day down at the Market House in Kingston. Lots of lovely people to chat to - some friends, others just friendly strangers!

'Kimono Continued'... The first stage of the fan is completed. Just need to wait for a few days for it to dry so I can add the details on the surface.
Started the first coat of the fabric, trying to paint the shadows and light on the folds of the kimono. Hope to get that finished tomorrow so I can start the background on Sunday. Everyone keeps asking what I am going to do to the background. The answer: I'm not entirely sure yet! Lets wait and see, it'll be a surprise to even me!

Thanks to everyone who popped in to say 'hi' today. It was lovely to see some familiar people who I haven't seen in a while as well as those of you I see more regularly x

Relaxing Painting and Exhibition Fun

The exhibition has got off to a fantastic start with lots of interest in artwork and originals selling.
I have had a good opportunity to continue working on my Kimono Girl today. The tricky fan is underway... Lets see how much I can get finished tomorrow!

Exhibition Now Open!

Claire and I spent a relaxing first day of the exhibition with our easels out painting. I am hoping to get this finished over the course of the week.
