‘Ardban’ – exhibition launch

My new series for a solo exhibition – ‘Ardban’ – launches on Friday 18th October at the Limetree Gallery in Fortwilliam (not to be confused with Limetree Gallery Bristol for whom I’m creating new works for their Christmas exhibition this year!).

A few photos to show framed painting and to show scale …

 

I look forward to traveling up to Fortwilliam for the exhibition launch – all welcome to attend, it’s open to the public and starts at 7pm, 18th October (exhibtion continues to 30th November).

The address is Lime Tree An Ealdhain Gallery, The Old Manse, Achintore Road, Fort William, PH33 6RQ.

I’ve been fighting off a cold as well as painting all week so I’m too puggled (old Scots word for tired) to write more today, but here are two more videos (by Adam Brewster, thanks Adam!) of painting on the beautiful beach of Ardban (one showing that it can be sunny, the other showing that sometimes you can dispense with brushes). Thanks again to Donald Ferguson for arranging this amazing holiday – I look forward to going back there again!

Ardban Series

‘Early Evening. Ardban’. Mixed media on 31×22″ paper. Rose Strang 2019

Today’s finished paintings for my upcoming exhibition at Limetree Lime Tree An Ealhain Gallery, in Fortwilliam, which opens this year on the 18th October.

You can view all the paintings so far Here (there will be ten in total). If you’re interested in reserving any of these paintings, please contact Limetree Fortwilliam at info@limetreefortwilliam.co.uk

Most of these paintings were painted in situ on the amazing peninsula of Ardban near Applecross on the west coast of Scotland. I’m finishing the rest in the studio which is less idyllic but more practical at least – here’s a video showing the wild conditions! …

Resipole, Ardnamurchan

The exhibition launch at the Resipole Gallery was fun and convivial, and Ardnamurchan was beautiful as always. (above – ‘Sanna Bay, Seaweed’, below, photos from the Resipole) ..

 

 

 

 

The exhibition continues until 28th June. All artworks on this link, also contacts for the gallery if you have any queries about the paintings: https://www.resipolestudios.co.uk/rose-strang

I went up there with a few friends and we stayed on the beach at Ardtoe in the Ardnamurchan peninsula – midgy but lovely.

Some photos –  in the afternoon, sunset then dawn…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Continuing the castles and mythology theme for the Planets Series, we visited Castle Tioram which, though very overcast, looked mythical as ever, more so perhaps. Bad weather suits the west coast and highlands! These luscious pink rhododendrons are everywhere in May and June on the West Coast …

 

 

 

We sheltered in my favourite hotel – the Glenfinnan Hotel at Loch Sheil…

 

 

 

And lastly, some photos taken while we drove through Glencoe – it looks iconically Glencoe-esque in this weather …

 

 

 

More Sanna Bay …

Sanna Bay

‘Sanna Bay (sea shallows)’. Mixed media on 14×11″ wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

‘Sanna Bay (teal water)’. Mixed media on 14×11″ wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

Today’s paintings of the wonderful Sanna Bay in Ardnamurchan. I’m quite happy with the water effect in Sanna Bay (shallow water) which doesn’t really show up in a photo – a bit of underlying texture and colour then a shallow glaze of turquoise with varnish. The painting directly above ‘painted itself’ as they say – always a good thing as it feels like I’m getting into the flow of this series of Ardnamurchan.

The exhibition of these paintings will be at the Resipole Gallery – a three person exhibition which launches on the 17th May. I’m going to take a trip up there for the opening, also for more painting.
