Back to the Future thumb.JPG
In March this year we shall be escaping the gloom of England (well, I am writing this in January), flying to Australia for six weeks or so to see our families there. A sketchbook will be kept and my camera will be on hand to record ideas for future paintings − in Australia there is so much light in abundance, even the shade is luminous. By the time we return after Easter light and weather here will be better here too.
     At home my favourite subjects continue to be man and his works − Life or Portrait figures and the built environment. I do particularly enjoy the city, and marine studies on coast and river.  
     Last year I taught several life drawing and painting workshops locally, and more are planned for this year. I help my students to intensify their observation of the model, of the structure and rhythm of the pose, and then to use the chosen media, drawing or painting, to best express the pose.  If you would be interested in these classes then do please contact me. I shall also be running a workshop at Horsley later in the year, exploring the possibilities of pen and wash for quick sketching.
    Exhibitions of small works at the Brokers Wine Bar in Leadenhall Market, with both the Lloyd’s Art Group and the Maritime Art Group, will continue during the year, and I shall be entering work as always at the annual exhibitions of Farnham and Dorking Art Societies, as well as with the Armed Forces Art Society and the Society of Graphic Fine Art. Links are given on the Exhibitions page.
    Paul and I will next be taking part in Surrey Open Studios in 2018, but we love to see interested visitors at any time by appointment. Email or give me a call on 07972 198430.

For anyone who is interested: I was apparently somewhat undersized at birth, and so dubbed “Tiddler”, later abbreviated to “Tid”, the name by which I’ve always signed my work.
