Rise Art 11.13

Rise Art Interview. November 2013.

Here’s part of an interview which I’ve recently done with Rise Art which they’ve just put up on the website. The link for the full interview is http://www.riseart.com/article/2013-11-25-spotlight-on-our-artist-kevin-dutton

Midcentury Modern 1.12.13

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.

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.

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.

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

 

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.

BAF 9.12

Samphire, Norfolk.

Translucent spears of Samphire (Salicornia europaea) at Holkham Bay, Norfolk.

Summer rain 17.7.12

Summer Rain.

It’s not all bad this summer. Here’s a good example of how lush the garden is in mid-July. Rain on the leaves of Vitis ‘Brant’.

Philadelphus 7.12

Philadelphus (Mock Orange) Flowers.

Short-lived but richly fragrant flowers on this Philadelphus. I’ve been trying to shoot these in the studio but with limited results; they begin to wilt so quickly.

 

Bloomsbury 9.7.12

Bloomsbury Art Fair, London.

Here’s a closer look at some of the prints displayed at the Bloomsbury Art Fair  including ‘Narcissi 1’, size 30″ x 40″.

Another humbling experience at the pristine allotment of my dad (81) in Southampton. Imagine a model/textbook wartime plot…

Flowers, Swaffham. 4.12.

Artificial Flower Market Stall. Swaffham, Norfolk.

Wandering around the market in Swaffham, Norfolk, my eye was caught by this seriously colourful floral display.

Wild Garlic

Allium ursinum (ramsons, wild garlic) at Ilam, Peak District.

Seas of wild garlic just beginning to come into flower at Easter. I snapped these during a walk in the Peak District at Ilam, Derbyshire. Wild garlic has plenty of common names: Ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, and bear’s garlic.

Blossom 3.12

Blossom. Local trees.

Dozens of the ornamental cherry (Prunus) trees near my home are currently festooned with blossom.

Primula 26.3.12

Primula Vulgaris. Knight’s Hill Allotments.

Primulas seem to be everywhere right now. Resisted strong urge to dig these ones up & rush them to the studio.

23.03.12 – Blue Shed

Allotment Shed. Knight’s Hill Allotments.

Went to collect scaffolding planks which were delivered to the allotments yesterday, but sadly all had been snaffled. This peeling shed caught my eye on the way back. Knight’s Hill has an extraordinary mixture of natural and artificial colour.

12.3.12 – Frogs

Frogwatch. Knight’s Hill.

Lots of frog activity in a neighbour’s pond this weekend.

9.3.12 Arum leaves

Garden. Arum leaves.

Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’ (Lords and ladies). This provides lots of engaging leaf colour which is much needed at this early part of spring.
