Narcissi 5.3.14

Narcissi, March 2014.

With only a week to go before the Affordable Art Fair at Battersea, here’s one of the my new images which will be on sale at Gas Gallery’s stand.

Pullens Yard, 12.13.

Pullens Yards Open Studios. 6-8 December.

For anyone who missed last Sunday’s show at Midcentury Modern, here’s another opportunity to see some of my prints this weekend. My work will be at the Gas Gallery showroom but there’s lots of other stuff to see and do.

Liquidamber.11.13

Sweet Gum leaf. Autumn.

There are so many autumn leaves to shoot at the moment, but this striking Sweet Gum leaf (Liquidamber Styraciflua) is among the brightest, in contrast to Euphorbia foliage and a Silver Birch leaf.

PD AAF 10.13

Affordable Art Fair. Battersea, London.

Photo Democracy, who sell my work in London, W1, have a stand at The Affordable Art Fair this week, 24-27th October in London’s Battersea Park. They’re offering free tickets to registered Photo Democracy members. Click here for details.

Grand Designs 10.13

Grand Designs. Channel 4 Television.

Here’s one of my framed images – Aster 1, size 30″ x 30″ – which was shown on last night’s broadcast of Grand Designs on Channel 4. The images on the program itself show an incredible transformation from the site which I saw when I went to deliver the work. It looked like a V2 rocket had hit it! I think the owners, despite the excitement of the project, are now mightily relieved that all the work is complete and that they can finally get a decent night’s sleep. I much enjoyed the hilarious footage of them planted the sedum/succulents/wild flowers on the roof.

Dock, 10.13

Dock seed heads, London.

Walking along Cornish sections of the South West Coast Path in late summer, the deep rusty colours of Dock seed heads were a constant source of temptation for blog photography (see previous entry). Funnily enough though, here in London, riding along a green path which takes the route of the old Peckham branch of the Grand Surrey Canal, these large specimens of Rumex crispus  (Curled Dock, Curly Dock, Yellow Dock, Sour Dock, Narrow Dock, Garden Patience Narrow-leaved Dock) have looked stunning these last few weeks, standing out from a meadow of handsome weeds as I turn right off the path on to Glengall Road. I’ve just done a bit of research on the path ( Surrey Canal Path) and the stretch I ride along has been amusingly re-branded The Surrey Linear Canal Park. It’s a rather tidy walkway but my eye is always drawn by those unkempt, neglected areas where weeds can spread out and really show what they can do.

Cornwall, 8.13.

Cornwall, August 2013.

The striking colours here of Rumex Obtusifolius (Dock). This is one of a series of photographs taken on and around the Cornish Coastal Path in late summer. The full set of images is on my Facebook page facebook.com/kevinduttonphotography.

Fleurs du Roi. 8.13

Fleurs du Roi, Versailles.

For anyone in the Versailles area, this exhibition of botanical art is worth a visit. The show includes watercolours on vellum, paintings and also features a newly replanted scented garden. It’s on until the end of September and is in the Grand Trianon, right next to Marie Antoinette’s famous estate. http://en.chateauversailles.fr/news-/events/expositions/fleurs-du-roi-en

Borage. 5.7.13.

Borage at the allotment.

I’ve been harvesting Borage (Borago officinalis) today, otherwise known as starflower. I’ll be shooting them in the (dark!) studio but hopefully there will be some left over later to add to a glass of Pimms in the sunshine.

Valerian. 6.13.

Valerian, Kent.

Walking along the coastline in Kent, near Broadstairs, you can look up to see numerous plants growing tenaciously in the chalks cliffs, especially  this red Valerian centranthus ruber.

AAF 6.13

Scarlet Elf Cup 4.13

Scarlet Elf Cup. Kent Woodland.

Bumping into a fungus expert in the Kent woodlands, I was shown beautiful specimens of the scarlet elf cup (or scarlet elf cap or scarlet cup), Sarcoscypha coccinea covering areas of the forest floor.

North Downs Snow 3.13

Chard/Frost 1.13

Frost, Knight’s Hill.

I’ve managed to get up to the allotments early on a few occasions this month to document some uncharacteristically severe frosts. Here the frost has built up on (someone else’s) chard.

Snow/garden 1.13

Snowfall, London.

Lots of snowfall here last night. And with so little wind, the settled snow makes for some intriguing shapes looking up at this vine at midnight.

Artfinder 1.13

Artfinder Online Gallery.

A selection of my work will now be on sale through the online gallery artfinder.com

 

New Forest

Fungus, New Forest, Hampshire.

Working in the New Forest, there are numerous piles of wood around covered with moss and fungus, thriving in these damp conditions.  Looking closer, I noticed  a shocking range of form and colour.

Cley, 11.12

Blakeney Point, near Cley next the Sea, Norfolk.

The Norfolk coastline is, even in November, so rich in life and colour. Just looking down at my feet, there’s Lichen, Sea-Blite, and Sea-Lavender.

You also get a lot of sky for your money in Norfolk. Looking up, here are a large quantity of, I think, Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

AAF 11.12

Affordable Art Fair, Hampstead, London.

Here’s a snap of some of my larger work on sale at the Gas Gallery stand at the Affordable Art Fair, Hampstead.

Geranium. 10.11.

Autumn leaf colour.

It’s hard to pick out any particular plant in the garden at this time of year, such is the riot of autumn leaf colour. This Geranium wlassovianum is always present with its striking red leaves.
