About the Book
The Bromley Project is one artist's representation of one day in Bromley. Images of the North Village and of Downe House present town and country in paint (and a little bit of oil pastel).
This is the day that was: 26 August 2012
It was quite a nice day.
The book, which accompanies the exhibition scheduled for 24 March 2013, includes all of the paintings from the project along with selected "in progress" shots and notes made by the artist. There are also a few short articles about art.
Amanda Bates is a mother, a writer, a scientist and an artist. She doesn't consider any of these to be contradictory, but she does wish there was more time to do the ones that aren't her day job. She lives in north Hampshire and is very fond of taking her painting gear out for walks on the downs. When that isn't practical, she has been known to paint at home. She works predominantly in oils and acrylic.
