Work-In-Progress Painting Options?
The Kapiti Arts Trail kicks off again Saturday morning 5 November 2022 and with me still in between houses and studios I’m again exhibiting as an ‘Artist in Own Studio’ but located at Artel Gallery in Otaki. This year instead of painting just smaller canvases on a trestle table and hanging the finished ones on the walls, my big old easel has been set up and I have four or five bigger unfinished paintings in situ to work on as well . . . although disgracefully dripping paint and turps off the canvases onto the carpet is not permitted apparently!
The new painting below on the left measures 1800mm x 1200mm and is just an underlayer. As a guide the painting on the right was finished and sold some years ago but can be used as an example of what the new one is more likely to look like when the multi-layering is finished and the painting complete.
For a bit of fun a few of these big ‘work-in progress’ paintings are being offered for sale during the two Arts Trail weekends (and in between) at a significantly lesser price than their finished counterparts. So it’s a bit like a lucky dip – take the risk and reap the rewards of buying an unfinished painting and hopefully be delighted when you eventually take possession of the finished product.
Of course there are also several finished paintings available at Artel from tomorrow to choose from – below find Beyond The Drift III on the left and Adrift II on the right. Both these are 1000mm x 1000mm and finished!
Look forward to seeing you at Artel Gallery in Otaki sometime over the next 10 days!
