The Three Hulats, Harrogate Road, LS7
Being local, I am honoured to have my paintings on show at The Three Hulats for the next two weeks as part of the Chapel Allerton Art Trail 2014, organised by Inkwell and Chapel Allerton Arts Festival. My pictures are in the darts room, so be careful. Lots of local artists are getting exposure during festival week. Download a map here.
The Offical Opening of the event happens on Tuesday 26th August, 6-9pm. Follow the art trail along the 18 locations on Harrogate Road from Inkwell to Further North Bar (about half a mile). Everyone is welcome!
There’s an Art Trail Artists’ Talk on Thursday 28th August, 6-8pm at Inkwell. I’ll be taking part, along with fellow artists Nick Claiden, Helen Dryden and Fred Pepper.

I painted the view a few times, each picture moving closer to how I saw it. To help with the last painting, I sketched it first with my eyes shut.

Trees and houses face each other. The leaves are out, the trees will win – if left to their own devices.
Another commission – and I was keen to do it. I exhibited here recently in the Roundhay Arts Trail. One of my more formal paintings, not an easy subject and difficult to execute.
