Thank you to everybody who came to my exhibition preview at Kilcock art gallery and a special thank you to cllr Vincent P martin for standing in at the last minute to making the opening speech after Mary Reynolds canceled due to illness.(lovely video on his facebook page and also on Kilcock art gallery's page, which has proved popular viewing!). One other post that has proved to be massively popular was about my method of painting so by popular request I have put together a slide show of how I painted 'Cool Water' below. The exhibition runs until the 16th of November, Wednesday- Saturday, 11am - 4pm
All are welcome to come along to the opening preview at Kilcock art gallery, Co.Kildare tomorrow Saturday 19th Oct. All the paintings are on the gallery walls ready! For more details please contact the gallery or me if you prefer on my contact page. The gallery also has a facebook page, twitter, instagram, google and linkedin.
I thought it might be interesting to say a bit about my painting method.I spend a lot of time in the field sketching, especially wildlife, which I find really helpful. Although I often start an oil painting out in the countryside (or do a small scale oil sketch) most of my oil paintings are completed back in the studio over weeks or sometimes months using my sketches and photographs for reference as my work is highly detailed.I work mainly with brushes in a realistic but painterly style which I find allows me to exercise my skills whilst leaving me creative freedom to express myself by interpreting what I see and so allowing something of my thoughts and feelings to be in my paintings.
The paintings for my forthcoming exhibition at Kilcock art gallery are now all at the gallery! and I am sending out invitations for the opening preview which is on 19th October 3-5pm 2019 with special guest Mary Reynolds (www.marymary.ie), the exhibition will then run until 16th November.
The exhibition features wildlife and landscape oil paintings and watercolour and graphite wildlife sketches all of which are available to purchase now, just contact the gallery or myself for details, the prices are also on the gallery website- www.kilcockartgallery.ie
Looking forward to seeing everyone on the day,
Sarah Corner, Artist
