I spent the morning with the artist Andrew Hood. Based in Bristol England,
he was holding a studio exhibition entitled "City + Land" featuring recent
paintings and drawings from locations as diverse as the city of London to
beach scenes from the South of France.
Andrew Hood in the studio
Hood uses sketches made on location and produces, back in the studio, smaller
works on board to further explore the subjects and produce the finished work.
Using a variety of mediums including oil paint, bitumen and even barge paint!
has given Hood a direction in which "happy accidents" and the "fluidity" of paint
produces work in which an element of chance is embraced.
