This little blog post is long overdue my friends so apologies for that … it has been a tad busy through April I have to say!
Kate had said she would be a little nervous but she didn’t appear to be at all and was soon settling in to the questions that people wanted to ask as well as taking us through some of the processes she uses layering up her paintings.
Kate openly admitted to ‘being a floozy with colour’ and if you’ve seen her finished paintings you will understand what she means – they are awash with colour and this brings each building, hillside, tree, canal, river and even chicken alive.
Everyone really enjoyed watching Kate paint and they were also eager to hear about her current project Lost Houses.
Kate had brought a few pieces from her Lost Houses project that were paintings in progress and these were extremely interesting to see at such an early stage. It was also great to hear about all the research Kate is having to do for this new body of work.
We did finish slightly later than we thought but no-body cared as they had all had a jolly good time with Kate. I for one left knowing it was going to feel like a long wait to see Kate’s Lost Houses paintings in Spring 2016 but that it would actually soon be here!
