Visiting Bhutan

I visited Bhutan about 30 years ago and got lost on a rainy trek in the mountains. We were 'saved' by the local MP. I told him I'd paint his picture and send it to him as a thank you which I did. I remember he laughed alot and made us feel very welcome. And warm.

A very early painting from my Foundation course

A very early painting from my Foundation course in Blackpool, where I was taught by the formidable Neville Wakling. He liked to measure everything and correct your work, which took me years to recover from. Owned by Lynne and Brian Lever and only recently rediscovered, years later!

A note from Glynn Uzzell

A note from Glynn Uzzell, a painter friend and dear man, who tragically died in 2014 at home in his beloved Portugal. We admired each other’s work and he was a huge encouragement – he told me always to go into the studio, if only to sweep, because as long as you were there, something would come. Much missed.

Artist Interview | Seven Day Cyclist

“Flying, that is what it felt like. That is what I tried to convey in these paintings.” That is Louise Hardy’s overwhelming impression of riding a bike. So, the London-based artist created a series of paintings of cyclists - all entitled Flying. No, the cyclists are not the heroes and heroines of the pro-circuit, they are images of cycling portraying the emotions that cycling brought. Steve Dyster spoke to Louise about the images and how they came about.

Love Story

I was commissioned to do a large work (120 x 150cm) based on a particular stretch of the Thames, showing Poplar Rowing Club as seen from Greenwich. The commission was a birthday present and the Club featured was where the couple had had their first kiss.
