Some recent paintings of cakes and desserts have been forwarded to the Alexander Gallery in Bath.

In these studies, although the overall image appears to have a high finish, Andrew has focused in areas of the painting by limiting the detail where he considers it to be the most effective and more relevant.

Over the past few months, alongside producing this work, Andrew has been examining another discipline in painting. By exploring an alternative theme or in developing a new project, this can provide fresh ideas and broaden an overall understanding of the value of different mediums and techniques.

Andrew has found that this approach can have a constructive influence when returning to a familiar subject.

We hope to be posting updates about the newer work in the coming weeks.
