February 2015: I was asked to do a painting on site for a charity fair at the Singapore Embassy in Dubai. I prepared most of the painting the day before and finished it off by adding people who were at the event. This painting was a raffle prize for charity. A smaller trial painting will be auctioned at the annual ball in Dubai later in 2015 for the same charity
Sept13 I worked with a small group from The North of England Art Club on a commission for a 24m run of ceiling panels to be hung in a new Wetherspoon's pub in Byker. The change of scale has been a new challenge for all of us except Ken, who used to work on large scale graphics for Formica. We worked in a temporary 'studio' based in a listed Georgian house (awaiting further restoration) in Westgate Road.
The design theme is The River Tyne and shows abstracted images of riverside structures (masts, cranes,bridges,staithes) from Tynemouth to Blaydon.
The finished 24m x 2m run of boards is illustrated below
