Painting of Wells beach with a gentle tide by Tracey Ross Artist

‘Brighter Days – Wells’ this painting is going to a new gallery in June.It’s seems like it’s been a cold spring especially,  as last year at this time it was very hot and sunny. In the studio the work continues to thrive, moving paintings over the finishing line has been the main focus. Next it’s signing, finding suitable titles, giving each painting a stock number, then finally giving them two coats of Winsor & Newton satin UV varnish.

Tracey Ross art exhibition at Salthouse Church, Norfolk

I don’t know about you but sometimes I feel all over the place… and this month feels like no exception! What with a family wedding and a new building extension being added to our cottage, my time in the studio has been challenging.

Nearly finished!

However, even without hours and hours of dedicated studio time – it seems that by just turning up, mixing the paint and applying it – things slowly begin to happen and this is the exciting part of being an artist!

More updates to follow soon…

January 2023


I have attempted to make this months inspirations post several times but each time something went wrong and it did not publish…

This month I’m looking for new inspiration and there is nothing better than a walk along the coast, as even in winter a bit of sunshine can lift the dullness. This photo was actually taken last autumn but I love it for it’s winning colour combinations of orange and blue.


New ideas forming in the studio – this month I’ve been planning out my year with some goal setting and some different ways of working. More of this to follow…

December 2022

December – how can that suddenly be the end of the year! This is a good time to look back and reflect on how the year has been for your art business. I am part of a lovely community of artists called the Connected Artist Club which is run by Alice Sheridan. You can look her up on Instagram @alicesheridanstudio and this is something that Alice shares in her membership. But you can do this yourself by looking back through your diary and social media posts such as Instagram or even your photos on your mobile and write down what happened each month in a notebook. I bet you have achieved far more than you thought you had!

This year I had the opportunity to work on several commissions. In the spring Birketts approached me to create a collection of seascape paintings for their newly refurbished offices in Norwich. Below is a photograph of me delivering one of the paintings to the Brancaster Boardroom.

‘Paint the Light’

After delivering my first online course this spring I will be reviewing the material and feedback from the artists who joined me. It was a brilliant and nerve-wracking time, especially getting my head around all of the technical side of how to make the videos and which platform to host it on. If learning how to use mixed media to create semi – abstract seascapes is something that you’re longing to learn then why not add your name to my mailing list – to find out when I’ll be launching it again in 2023.

Paint the Light – my new online course will be back in 2023. To find out about it the best thing is to sign up to my mailing list.
