From his studio close to the banks of the River Wylye in South Wiltshire, Nick Andrew paints the nearby water-meadows, lakes, forest and especially the river in all seasons and times of day.
Nick also explores themes further afield: since January 2016 he has been researching London green spaces in his ‘Sticks in the Smoke’ drawing project. Find out more in the projects page and his ‘Sticks in the Smoke’ blog. From 15- 24 October, Nick’s drawings will be reproduced and on show around Bloomsbury as part of the Bloomsbury Festival. He will be drawing in the Bloomsbury squares and gardens during this time.
Nick’s most recent plein air drawing project: ‘A Gap in the Market’: a year- long series of drawings of Salisbury Charter Market, was exhibited in Aug- Sept 2021 at Fisherton Mill, Salisbury:
