Shelford Group of Artists Easter Exhibition 2013

On The Mud (Wells-next-the-Sea)
Watercolour on Paper
27cm x 30cm (6.5" x 12")

This is one of the pictures I am exhibiting in the Shelford Group of Artists Easter Exhibition.

I posted a version of the picture last April (see On the Mud). Since then it has had a radical haircut - Across the Trent suffered a similar fate before the 2012 exhibition (see Shelford Group of Artists Easter Exhibition 2012).

Choosing exhibits from the previous year's paintings is an enjoyable experience. It is a chance to reflect on each of the pictures. It is satisfying to find paintings that can be improved by re-cropping or by adding some finishing touches.
The other pictures I am exhibiting are:

Three of the pictures were painted in group meetings and four were painted at home.

The exhibition is in Shelford Village Hall (NG12 1EN) and is open between 10am and 4 pm on Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

If you get the chance, please pop in. I will be there between 10am and noon on Sunday.

Hyacinths (Work In Progress)
Watercolour on Paper
25cm x 34cm (10" x 13")

I've made some progress on the still life with hyacinth's (see Not Still Life)

The picture is at a make or break point. There are some important reflections and shadows to add to the bottle and then I have to decide how to finish it.
