I spent most of the day with John Wonnacott, a painter I much admire and whose landscape paintings are going to be the subject of an exhibition at the Focal Point Gallery in Southend-on-Sea, opening on May 4th.
This is him in his studio (it looks like one of his paintings because he uses wide angle perspective and often paints the view out to sea):-
This is a recent Self-portrait:-
And an older Self-portrait:-
This is the view out to sea:-
This is lunch because he thinks my blog is obsessed by food:-
And this is a painting which I like and he doesn’t which I hope he’ll include in the exhibition:-
