The 1st Kilburn Festival in London (link opens in a new  page) is being held on the weekend of the 22nd to the 24th of May.

The organisers have arranged an event raffle in aid of the Nepal Earthquake Appeal, and I’m happy that they have accepted my painting of Mount Brandon as a prize for this important appeal.

Love art.

The midges (flies) were a menace and got into the paint and itched and got everywhere. The land had been mist laden all week, and now the sudden burst of sunshine gave a great contrast in all the colours of autumn. I had to finish the mountain shadows back in the studio – I wanted the shadow shapes on the mountain as they were when I first caught sight of the view – they changed dramatically as you can imagine.
