Beautiful and intriguing paintings by artist Stephen Lovatt

Preparations for the Spring Exhibition

Susan and I are preparing for our spring exhibition at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory with a vengeance. I am less likely to be posting to this blog for a while, but Susan will be updating the studio blog and she has also started a One for the Crow Facebook page. I’ve had a complete change of style, it happens sometimes. The new paintings are up on my gallery page, here’s a taster.

Enclosure – The Movie



A movie showing the preparation, drawing, inking in, blocking in, and all stages of an abstract expressionist painting entitled ‘Enclosure’. ‘Enclosure’ is the result of an intense study of the inside of a walnut shell.
