The Discerning Eye and Next Workshop Update

Ashley was delighted to have 'Charlestown 7' selected for the prestigious ING Discerning Eye exhibition. Six judges, a combination of Artists, Collectors and Art Critic's were invited to make individual selections for this exhibition. Each group of work is hung separately giving the impression of six individual exhibitions. Ashley's painting was chosen by Gerald Walker, CEO ING Commercial Banking UK, Ireland and Middle East.
The show continues at the Mall Galleries, London until 25th November.


Ashley will be hosting his popular 'Freedom in Painting' workshop once again at Canterbury Christchurch University Mon-Tues, 17- 18th Dec 2012.
Bring an open mind, explore the language of colour and the possibilities in painting. Ashley will endeavour to challenge and inspire you with his expertise of colour, oil paints, technique, mark-making and composition. His aim is to help you take your painting further and find your own ‘Freedom in Painting’. Ashley always has something new and inspirational to offer. This workshop is suitable for students and artists with some experience in painting.
Some comments from students on his last Canterbury workshop:
"Thank you for your time, patience and marvellous guidance over the last couple of days in Canterbury. Really helpful and great ambeince too."
Margaret Anderson
"Thanks to Ashley I had the confidence to enter the painting that I produced at his workshop into Whitstable's A1 Open Art exhibition"
Catriona Campbell
"I usually work using a lot of detail, this course helped to loosen up my style and helped me to approach painting from a different angle"

Photo's of PV at Canvas and Cream Prize Winning Show

Thanks to everyone who came along to the PV of 'Landscape in Flux'.
A great turn out, a great evening  and a terrific show! It was very exciting to see all the paintings from the 'City of Glass' series together for the first time .

'Graft ii' and 'Graft i' by Susan Eyre 

My fellow prizewinner Susan Eyre's work is both exquiste and enigmatic and although our approaches to landscape are very different, the work complimented each other.


Thank you to everyone for your positive feedback and a special thank-you to Joanna and the team for all their hard work in putting the show together.

'City of Glass 5 (Truthville), and City of Glass 4 (Hope Falls, hope falls...)
