It’s a real pleasure to be able to post these pictures, examples of work by Laurence Kell. Laurence joined the group last year, soon after moving to Bristol from Cornwall with his young wife and child. If you have a look at his website www.laurencekell.co.uk you’ll be able to read about how he started painting in the family hotel using the walls as gallery space and have a look at some other stupendous examples of his work. His c.v is impressive too; he’s exhibited at the B.P. sponsored exhibition at the National Portrait gallery as well as with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. I hope to be able to include some of Laurence’s life drawings in a future post.
