One of Dorset’s most popular artists, Julian Bailey is launching his new drypoint etchings at Sladers Yard this Christmas. Some coloured by hand and some in black and white, the pictures have his usual joie de vivre and economy of line. The new etchings are printed by Julian himself in editions of 12, prices for framed pictures range from £155 to £285.
Julian lives with his wife and four children outside Dorchester. He travels the Dorset coast with his VW camper and his sailing dinghy, often drawing the cliffs from the sea. His clear colours and simple very effective drawings made him successful from the start. Before he came to Dorset he painted London’s café society in Notting Hill before it became recognised. His work has always celebrated his subject matter, showing people enjoying themselves and the world at play.
Beautifully printed facsimile editions of Julian Bailey’s Dorset Sketchbook and Julian Bailey’s People Sketchbook and a selection of greetings cards and postcards are also available.
Julian’s work will be on show at Sladers Yard until 8th January 2011. For further details visit our website www.sladersyard.co.uk.
