Plein air with Nick Andrew

WE may all be stuck in lockdown again, but you can still get out in the fresh air. Well-known Wiltshire artist Nick Andrew is enjoying plein air drawing for a new project, A Gap in the Market, exploring Salisbury’s historic Charter Market throughout the coming year.

All the drawings, including The Happy Fruiters Stall, Salisbury Market, 22.09.20, will be exhibited at Fisherton Mill, Salisbury, next September.

Nick has provided the illustrations for a new book, Bloomsbury’s Squares & Gardens, which explores the history, character and life of these diverse green spaces. It has been published by the Association of Bloomsbury Squares and Gardens.

There was more good news for Nick and his partner, artist Tanya Hinton, who share studio space at Bull Mill, Crockerton, near Warminster, when Tanya won first prize at the Wiltshire Creative Summer Open in Salisbury with her dramatic painting, Into the Wild.
