Here’s an oil of Croyde Bay at about 7pm in early June after a lovely sunny day.
Had a lovely week on the beautiful North Devon coast recently with the grandchildren. Croyde is renowned as a great place for surfers and the Ruda holiday park has everything for a childhood holiday. It’s also a great area for the artist. I have a whole series planned. Here are the first two- a watercolour and an oil.
A watercolour of Tully Cross, gateway to Renvyle. Five years ago this week I painted this for the first time. This is this week’s version.
Two subjects that I have a painted many times but never tire of them. These are 45cm x 30cm on rough paper using Winsor and Newton Professional watercolours.
Two watercolour landscapes of Heather on Exmoor and Heavy cloud over Woodbury Common in East Devon. The oil is one my very favourite views of the Vale of Evesham looking over towards Bredon Hill and The Malverns. The joy of painting.
Here’s a watercolour of the Connemara mountains and an oil of the calm early morning light you can sometimes see over the Exe Estuary in Devon where I live.
I haven’t painted an Irish watercolour in ages so here’s one I did yesterday. the process of painting these scenes always takes me back there, so I may be doing a few more!!
Here’s an oil painting of cloud banking up over Renvyle, Connemara.
Enjoying a return to watercolour painting. Here are two very different studies: Pink Camellia amongst the daffodils and Landacre, River Barle, Exmoor. Both painted as freely and loosely as my ability allows.
I attended another brilliant Hester Berry workshop in Braunton (North Devon) recently where we painted a view of the Burrows. After being inspired by Hester I then painted a sunrise over the Exe Estuary in Topsham where I live (from one of many photos taken in the early morning . This one was from a photo taken last October).
