Postcards from Pembrokeshire – a year in paint
A talk by Guy Manning
In mid August 2016 Guy began his project to create a postcard-sized oil painting every day for a year. Incorporating home made paint, a dog called Watson Jones, a daily blog and paintings drying in the oven, this is a lively and irreverent account of an ill-prepared artist on a foolhardy quest.
What started out as a tentative daily painting project in August last year has become a bit of an obsession for local artist Guy Manning. “Postcards from Pembrokeshire” is a project in which Guy creates a postcard-sized painting every day for a year.
Described as “visual love letters from Pembrokeshire” and painted in oil paint, on top of ground colour made from local soils. Every day is different, every day Guy paints a response to something: landscapes, still lifes, found things, a bird feeding in the garden. And they are incredibly popular, selling to collectors in Wales, the UK, mainland Europe, the USA and Australia. For more details visit: www.postcardsfrompembrokeshire.com
