Progress on 'It's Saturday'

This painting is taking longer than usual as it is so packed with details and there are some new features for me, a weather vane, the footballers, ice cream van, policeman etc.   I am really enjoying bringing this village to life and I have just ordered some larger Bockingford paper to do a big painting, which I will have to work on in between the smaller Nuggleton pictures which I need for galleries and exhibitions.

It's Saturday

This painting has been re-named from Street Football to 'It's Saturday' as there is a street market, football, washing out, a yacht race and lots of traffic, people and will be busy, busy.

I will try to keep remembering to put progress pictures on so that you can see how it develops.

Junior Marching Band

Junior Marching Band is mounted and framed and ready for its journey to The Acorn Gallery tomorrow, along with Street Football.  They will be on display for two months so it will be interesting to see what reaction there will be from the viewing public.

Afterwards, they will be on sale at either Gallery Sales or the exhibition at St Ives in Cornwall in August.

I am enjoying every moment of this exciting journey and I would never have believed this would all happen when I first started this blog.

Where are we going next Nuggleton fans?

ABNA Website

My work is now available to view on the ABNA website, but putting my paintings aside...there is some fantastic, colourful, fun and extremely talented work to enjoy on this website.  Take a visit and you won't be disappointed.

As you can see, Marching Band is progressing along nicely and should be finished soon.  I have such a busy week ahead but I really want to get this done in time to take with me on Friday, when I am taking Street Football to The Acorn Gallery in Pocklington for display there.
