'A Sporting life' open exhibition Southampton

'A Sporting life' open exhibition Southampton 2016

Currently running at Southampton City art gallery is an open exhibition with the theme 'A Sporting Life'. It started on the 25 June and closes on the 10th September. I have two paintings on show, both painted in acrylics on a canvas sized at 20" x 28". Both paintings feature local scenes of the city showing sport themed meetings/ events.
Davey painting ABP art marathon running
The first photograph shows myself with my first entry painting, titled 'Sunday Morning ABP Marathon. Northam, Southampton. The location is the main road running through Northam, on the east side of the city during the 2016 running marathon, sponsored by Associated British Ports, a major employer in the city. I was always fascinated by the large gasometer which dominates this area, and this event gave me a good excuse to put it down in paint.
Martin Davey artist Southampton City gallery
The second painting is titled 'Sunday Morning Rowing At Itchen Bridge, Southampton'. It shows a typical Sunday morning at the BTC Rowing club, situated next to the Itchen Bridge, with new members being trained in to knowing how to be safe on the water. It was based on a number of photos I took during the morning for reference.
The two paintings can be seen clearly via these links.

Cow Line Up In Field - acrylic painting

Cow Line Up In Field - acrylic painting

This painting shows a line up of 4 cows sitting in a field in the countryside. It is based on a photograph which had four cows lined up, but I decided to recompose them by moving them together by a small amount as they were too widely spaced out.The original location was a field I spotted whist on a trip to Lyndhurst in the New Forest, Hampshire. I do not believed it rained any time after!
The painting measures 16” x 12” and is done on paper using acrylic paint during July 2016.

New Forest hill with cows and horses

New Forest hill with cows and horses

This painting shows a summer scene in the New Forest, Hampshire, with a hill dominating the composition. At the base of the hill can be seen a pair of cows sitting and relaxing in the sun. Up the hill on a path that winds up to the top stand a small group of horses. Unfortunately the name of the hill is unknown.
The painting is done in acrylics on a stretched canvas measuring 16” x 20”, during June 2016.
