What an amazing opportunity to spend Saturday painting on the manufacturing floor at Jaguar Land Rover in Solihull as part of their weekend festival. The experience of working from my subject matter in situ was so different to working in my studio. The colours and the structures seemed enhanced and the sounds of the machines and the robots added to the intensity of the experience. I’d love to do it again and spend more time there. In the meantime, I’m finishing the painting off in my studio and it will be shown at The British Motor Museum in due course. Thanks to all at Jaguar Land Rover for their help and encouragement. #JaguarLandRover #urbanlandscapes #factoryinteriors #JaguarLandRoverSolihull #TheBritishMotorMuseum #BMW #Mini #BMWplantCowleyOxford #carart #cars #oxfordartist #oxfordshire #industriallandscapes #architecture #Coventry #Solihull #Gaydon #oxfordshireartist #oxfordshireart #art #industrialartist #industrialart #artistsofinstagram #sarahmoncrieffpaintings #sarahmoncrieff
Continuing my series of car factory interiors I have been commissioned to undertake a live painting event at Jaguar Land Rover in Solihull this weekend to celebrate their 70th anniversary. I have already visited the body parts manufacturing floor, a fascinating interior of complex horizontal and vertical structures with some imposing robots and eerie Land Rover skeletons. I'm really looking forward to the challenge of trying to capture the essence of the place in just one day. Visitors will have the chance to see me in action and stop and speak to me. The finished painting and others I am working on together with my paintings of the BMW factory in Oxford will be on show at the British Motor Museum this year, dates to be confirmed.

Greatmoor energy statistics are impressive. 900 tonnes of waste are processed each day and the facility produces 27 mega watts of power, 24 of which are fed to the grid, enough to power 40,000 homes or 60% of the houses in Oxford. What a great opportunity to be involved with a facility that enables this. This painting shows the hall where the waste is delivered. #Greatmoor #EfW @FCC_environment # #renewableenergy #waste #energyfromwaste #environment #oxfordartist #buckinghamshire #oxfordshire #industriallandscapes #BucksArtWeeks #architecture #coventry #electricity #nonrecyclable #recycling #recyclingfacility #worldenvironmentday #UKEnergydivision #oxfordshireartist #oxfordshireart #art #industrialartist #industrialart #artistsofinstagram #sarahmoncrieffpaintings #sarahmoncrieff @GreatmoorEfW

I’m very excited that my exhibition at Greatmoor EfW in Buckinghamshire will open this Saturday and be running over 2 weeks. . My interest in sites such as Greatmoor has been a consistent theme throughout my work from the recycling facilities in Coventry and Oxford to abandoned cement works, Didcot power station and the production lines at BMW Oxford. I like to take complex structures and make them visually interesting to a wide audience. . Greatmoor (Energy from Waste) is an impressive yet hidden part of Buckinghamshire’s landscape. The facility combines a strong architectural presence with a commitment to community and environmental benefits. Greatmoor treats up to 300,000 tonnes of residual (non-recyclable) waste, diverting it from landfill and generating 22MW of electricity in the process. . Last year Greatmoor commissioned 6 paintings from me, giving me the chance to present this facility in a previously unseen light and to celebrate its endeavours. . The exhibition will be open to the public over eight days this June for Bucks Art Weeks 2018 as follows: June 9th-10th, 14-17th, and 21st-22nd. To enable visitors to experience the building that inspired the paintings there will be a guided tour each day at 2.00pm and I will be there throughout to talk about my work. You can get more details on the Greatmoor website www.greatmoor.co.uk . . . #Greatmoor #EfW @FCC_environment # #renewableenergy #waste #energyfromwaste #environment #oxfordartist #buckinghamshire #oxfordshire #industriallandscapes #BucksArtWeeks #architecture #coventry #electricity #nonrecyclable #recycling #recyclingfacility #worldenvironmentday #UKEnergydivision #oxfordshireartist #oxfordshireart #art #industrialartist #industrialart #artistsofinstagram #sarahmoncrieffpaintings #sarahmoncrieff @GreatmoorEfW
A walnut leaf sculpture by @richardcresswellsculptor seen at the open garden at Kingham Lodge for Oxford Art Week. I love the way you can see the garden through the leaf and the story behind the idea. According to his website, "his sculpture was created after being given a leaf skeleton by my daughter, which she thought too valuable to discard as she was moving and knew I would value it, After looking at many leaves I decided that the walnut tree had the most pleasing shapes". #walnutleaf #leafskeletons #artweek #oxfordshireart #sculpturegarden #gardeninspiration
Watching the Big Painting Challenge on BBC 1 this Sunday I was pleased to hear mentor Pascal Anson refer to mark making and asking participants not to make marks for the sake of it but to make marks with the paint that “mean something”. . This is a difficult but important concept to grasp. It is easy to give in to a desire to splash the paint on without really considering its impact and asking yourself important questions such as what colour and which brush should I use? and how should I apply the paint? Read my latest blog [Link in Bio] to discover how challenging it can be for an artist to say as much as possible as economically as possible. . . #Greatmoor #EfW @FCC_environment # #renewableenergy #waste #energyfromwaste #environment #oxfordartist #buckinghamshire #oxfordshire #bigpaintingchallenge #bbc #bbc1 #bbcone #bbcbigpaintingchallenge #artistsoninstagram #artist #painting #oiloncanvas #frankauerbach #pascalanson #oxfordshireart #art #woodstockartist
I found a cool black sketch pad in a charity shop today which reminded me of my sixth form days 🙌🏼 so I decided to have a little play around with colours on black but I was super tired and super ill and I have work tomorrow.
