a gap in the market

a gap in the market

A plein air drawing project, exploring Salisbury Charter Market throughout the year 2020 / 21.  Revisiting a subject of my work when I was an art student 40 years ago. Trying to capture the life and activity, the noise and bustle, the randomness of shape, colour and changing light of this historical meeting place in all seasons.

The drawings are all made using mixed media (pen, oil pastel, watercolour, ink and stick, oil base pencils) on Full Imperial (76 x 56cm) HP watercolour paper.

Below each drawing are my observations, written at the time of drawing, which can be viewed on the clicked images.

They will be exhibited at Fisherton Mill, Salisbury from 21 August- 25 September 2020. See the exhibition card here.

Limited Edition Prints (edition size: 25) are available of all the drawings below.
The print size of the rectangular images is 45 x 60cm and the unframed / umounted price is £120
The print size of the panoramic images (Nos: 10 / 14 / 21) is 36 x 96cm and the unframed / umounted price is £140
To check availability and to order, please contact me .
