Two Cambridgeshire artists have joined together to exhibit their work at the Babylon Gallery. Although friends for many years and both work in oils, their practice is very different. Francis Jeans always works directly in front of his subject matter. Often physically difficult; busy London streets or railway stations do not daunt him and he rather relishes the challenge. On the other hand, Ted Coney always works on the final painting in his studio, although some of the research will be on location. The final picture will come from a range of objects, sometimes specially commissioned or from his findings on a planned journey or event.
