Prices range from £1,900 to £12,000.

On the Cliffs by the Pinnacles, oil on canvas, 24 x 30 inches.


There will be 35 paintings in the show of views painted mainly in Dorset, capturing the atmosphere of the changing seasons, autumn into winter, followed by spring going through to the summer. With the weather constantly changing, the atmosphere of the landscape shifts through the seasons and by capturing this, his paintings produce a kind of delicacy and elegance.  Nicholas engages the beauty of the county in all its splendour and his love of Dorset shines through his work.

By the Church at Tintagel, oil on board, 8 x 10 inches.
 

Nicholas portrays on canvas that touch of magic that makes his paintings so identifiable. His style stems from the romantic painters of the 19th century resulting in the soft flowing form that his paintings take. As a student he was taught “if you are an artist….you will think about it all of the time” and he reiterates this point “when I am not painting in my studio, I am always thinking of painting and looking at things while I am driving about or walking, be it a long straight sunlit road, lined with telegraph poles and a sparrow hawk slips over the hedge…………..these are possible elements for a picture. I suppose it is as much part of the creative process as actually painting in the studio”.

Sheep on an Autumn Evening, oil on board, 8 x 10 inches.

Nicholas has lived near Blandford for the last 25 years where he has a studio. His daily routine is to take a sketch book and pencils when out walking where he will do rough drawings and then back in the studio he will work it into a more intricate drawing before starting on the canvas. Commenting on his studio Hely Hutchinson says, “My studio looks like a scene of chaos to any casual visitor. Paintings are everywhere, canvases hanging on nails, or leaning against walls and most of the flat surfaces are covered with smaller paintings.  There are tubes of paint, brushes and old palletes strewn about, and always the smell of oil painting and turps!”

The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 9.30am-5pm, to enjoy the paintings with plenty of space whilst maintaining a safe distance.  The artist will be present in the gallery on Friday 6th & Saturday 7th November. The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated colour catalogue and can be viewed online at The Jerram Gallery  from the beginning of November.
