Very proud of this featured article ...


Keith Tunnicliffe came up with a great idea - which is if you "get the call" and find you've got a place in a pod, why not take the opportunity to find out how it works BEFORE your heat.


With everything moving at a pace and with the first of the heats about to commence at Herstmonceaux in East Sussex I look at ways i can speed up the process to ensure I complete on time.


A great incite into the filming and the day ahead comes with watching a whole series of the competition. I choose to watch the first series which has a couple of linocut artists involved. My main reason for watching is soon forgotten as I get carried away with the art and the show! Time to concentrate and actually look at the pos and the artists to see how it all works. Lots learnt here and so straight to my table and lets see how we can improve ...


HERSTMONCEUX ...

We decide to pop down to see Herstmonceux Castle to help me familiarise myself with how it all works. A quick call to StoryVault to ensure I am allowed to be there and away we go. WOW, loved it, what an atmosphere, despite the weather. This was a great day out for both of us and the StoryVault people and the 50+ Sky crew were so approachable and so accommodating to everyone.'


You're too late to visit a heat prior to next year's application. However if you're really not sure and are umming and erring I think a visit to one of the Heats next year is all you need to make a decision one way or the other for the year after next.

I am pleased to announce that my new on-line gallery is now on my website with Descriptions/Sizes/Prices and how to buy. You can also view my work as it may look in a home setting. All my current works are linocut originals [not prints] and are based on my loose style and use of creative colours and therefore may differ slightly [normally sharper/clearer & brighter] from the digital image.


I would welcome any comments via this Blog Post or by my Contact Page. Should you be interested in any of my artworks do not hesitate to get in touch and we can chat by email of by phone whichever suits you.

Firstly, thank you for all your lovely comments and all your interest over the past few days! Well I bet I'm not the only one working on their website to update and introduce areas of interest now that Sky Arts have announced the dates for the forthcoming Landscape Artist of the Year 2019.


In the early part of May I received a call from StoryVault Films that turned out to be the start of an amazing opportunity to enjoy an experience so many amateur artists could only dream of. Social Media is buzzing with posts from artists who are involved, either as named pod artists or wild card artists.


You will have to watch the series that starts on 15 October on Sky Arts and my filming is on 29 October. Watch on Sky or on Now TV.
