The Bristol Art Prize - Call For Entries

The Bristol Art Prize is a new competition set up by the people who have been running the Bath Prize for the last few years. The Bristol Prize looks to be even bigger, anybody can enter and if your work is selected you have the opportunity to be part of a massive exhibition at the Guildhall in the centre of Bristol. The main award is a purchase prize for £5,000 and I believe more awards will be added to the website very soon. Entry deadline is Sunday 8th September.

Why not take a look -

Hedgehogs Progress

I've made a start on the next in my series of whimsical-animal-based-fantasy watercolour paintings (I need to think of a better title).
I'm really trying to push the warm and cool colour relationships in this painting and I'll have to be careful when I'm painting the snow, I've never been much good at that.

Badger Progress

I've started the colour work which is just about all you can see as my mobile phone camera is too blurry.

Royal Crescent Finished

Hurray! I finally finished my 6ft long painting of the Royal Crescent in Bath. Below you can see a stitched photograph which will have to do for now until I scan it properly.

Now let me get some sleep.
