Art Weekly 175 – A Rooftop Glimpse of St Ives

30th May 2017

It’s certainly been a while since my last Art Weekly painting, and thanks to you all for being so patient. I am back ‘on board’ now with the brushes flying. Let’s hope it lasts and I don’t get sucked into the lethargy of the European summer!

We spent a few days in the lovely English town of St Ives a couple of years ago, and I’ve been meaning to paint this one since. It has everything I love; rooftops, water and a tower, albeit a totally different colour palette than I’m used to.

Art Weekly 174 – The Next Wave, Curl Curl

aw-174-thenextwave_curlcurl6th December 2016 – SOLD

It sure has been a while since my last Art Weekly, and as those of you who follow me on Facebook and Instagram know, I’m up to my ears in “waves” right now.  It’s only a week before we hop on the plane to Sydney, and with an exhibition in February, I’ve plenty to get finished in that short time.

My Sydney exhibition, MOTHER OCEAN, is scheduled to open on 1st February at the Warringah Creative Space, 105 Abbott Street, North Curl Curl. The exhibition will show my paintings and eldest son, James’s fabulous photographs featuring, naturally enough, the ocean and its surrounds. James’ photos are the subject of most of my paintings, so it will be fascinating to see them both on the walls. I hope if you’re in the area, you can come along and say hello to us both, and see my temporary change of direction. I’m really loving painting the waves, but next year I do plan on returning to exploring more abstract European scenes as well.

In the meantime, this long overdue Art Weekly is just a small version of what I’ve been immersed in.

I’m having a few intermittent problems with my email right now, so in case anyone wants to respond to this, and receives a bounce back, please try me on jackiesinfrance@hotmail.com. It does still work!

Over the Great Barrier #2

oc-11_overthegreatbarrier2

The photograph I painted this from was taken by James whilst flying over the Great Barrier, Reef in Queensland, Australia. It’s the second in a small series of abstracts and I just love the patterns that the reef makes in its brilliant blue waters.

Details of this painting can be found in Gallery – Oceans.

Art Weekly 173 – A Touch of Sunshine

aw-173-atouchofsunshine27th September 2016

I took this photo a few years ago in France, when I was tootling around the back roads of the Lot. I came to a break in the trees, and there tucked away amongst the sombre colours of the surrounding forest, was this little field of sunflowers. What else could I do, but screech to a halt and leap out with my camera!  It’s always so good to be able to capture these memories with paint.

Art Weekly No 172 – Blue Chairs, Koroni

Blue Chair21st September 2016

As I mentioned in my recent Newsletter, I will be including some paintings from my #100 Painting Challenge in my Art Weekly mailouts. These paintings are a little smaller than A5, and done in various mediums – if you follow my Jackie Sherwood Artist page in Facebook, or Instagram, you may have seen them when they were originally posted.

I love these blue wooden chairs which seem to be scattered all over Greece! I took this photo when we first arrived in Koroni, and have often sketched and painted them. Unfortunately (for me) now, the building behind has been repaired and painted, very smartly, in a bright mustard colour. It just somehow just doesn’t have the appeal any more!

If you would like to buy this painting, please click on this link to my Art Weekly Online Shop, or if you’d rather deal with me direct, please email me at jackie@jackiesherwood.com.

Northern Territory Coral #1

oc-08_ntcoral1

This painting forms part of my ‘Oceans’ series and the photograph of this coral was taken by James in the Northern Territory of Australia. It seemed a unusually dull coloured coral, and I tried to keep my usual love for bright colours under control.

Details of this painting can be found in Gallery – Oceans.

Nearly Open, Honfleur

PN-07_NearlyOpen-Honfleur

Honfleur has long been one of my favourite towns in France and its well known throughout the world for its beautiful harbour, which I’ve painted a few times. On our last visit I also tried to photograph the colours of the cafes and restaurants lining the harbour which are still very much a huge part of Honfleur.
