New images 12.18

New images and last orders for Christmas. December 2018.

Here is one of the new images which has been on view in the last few weeks at various shows and exhibitions. It is part of a series of dahlia studies using eight different varieties of dahlias grown in the garden. This one is called Dahlias 3, but there will be more coming soon including landscape versions. It’s almost time for last orders for Christmas. I don’t think framed images are now possible but print only orders before 10th December can still be delivered in time for Christmas. 

Secret Charter/MCM 11.18

Secret Charter and Midcentury Modern Show. November 2018.

Here’s the image which I donated to the Secret Charter fundraising event recently to help fund the art department at The Charter School in Dulwich. Hundreds of artists gave pieces of work including Gary Hume, Tracy Emin and Anthony Gormley. Tickets were bought for £40 and the artworks were randomly allocated. Everything sold out in 25 minutes! The work was on show at the Dulwich Picture Gallery and the event raised over £50,000. Looking ahead, I will have new work on show on my stand at Midcentury Modern, Dulwich, London, SE21 7LD on Sunday 18th November, 10am-4pm. Feel free to contact me for free tickets via my contact page – I often have a few spare pairs.

AAF Stockholm 10.17

Cornwall. April 2017.

Cornwall. April 2017.

Having been down to Cornwall on so many occasions in the summer months, it was a real pleasure to enjoy a few fine days at Easter photographing the coastal plants around the Land’s End and Lizard areas. I’ve put an album of images on my Facebook page kevinduttonphotography. Amongst so many others, I saw spring squills, green-winged orchids, thrift, various sedums, rare western gorse, numerous mosses and lichens, seas of hawthorn blossom and three-cornered leeks which seemed to be everywhere.

Spring shows. February 2017.

Spring shows. February 2017.

I’m looking forward to adding another new tulip study to the collection at two forthcoming shows this spring. The Affordable Art Fair is at Battersea, London (9-12 March) and Midcentury Modern will be in Dulwich, London (19 March). The composition here, Mixed Tulips 2, was photographed last spring, and the current batches of tulips and other bulbs are just beginning to show signs of life for this year’s work.

Affordable Art Fair and Midcentury Modern. 3.15.

Affordable Art Fair and Midcentury Modern.

It’s been another busy weekend with two fairs at the same time (!) – The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea and Midcentury Modern in Dulwich. It’s always a great opportunity to meet the public to get feedback on the new work. There’s been a great response to my new plants studies, especially the mixed plant still life images. I now have to sort out the printing and framing orders, including some large framed orders of the image below, Mixed Plants 1, one of my studio compositions of various plants and flowers (including Philadelphus, Parthenocissus henryana, Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus’, and common blackberry flowers) which I grow in my garden or up at the allotment at Knight’s Hill.

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.
