Smooth Radio 100.4 fm and Clark Art of Hale are having a competition and the prize is one of my paintings!
All you have to do is tell Smooth radio what is your favourite part of the north west and why you want a painting of it. If you click on the link it should take you to a page on the smooth radio website where you can fill in a form and be in for a chance of winning.
I always like hearing about peoples connections to a specific place and when I’m out painting people are always suggesting where I should go next, which is how I choose most of my locations. So I’m looking forward to reading the results. I like the shell oil refinery but I was surrounded by police when I went to paint it, so don’t pick that one.
If you aren’t familiar with my paintings take a trip to Hale and go to Clark Art on Ashley road, or look at http://www.clark-art.co.uk. I make my own paints and paint directly from life or from sketches. I use my own interpretation of perspective which is a bit like a CCTV camera or the back of a spoon.
