Inishbofin is a small island in the west of Ireland. You get a small ferry from the tiny port of Cleggan . I love it and here’s a painting overlooking the harbour where the ferry docks. If you get a chance to go- seize it!
Three watercolours from another workshop with John Hoar. Here is a snowy scene and two west of Ireland paintings. The large white cottages are of the east end of Inishbofin island, County Galway. Can’t wait to be back there in May.
This is a view, showing St Leonard’s Church and the Cathedral that I see regularly on my bike rides into Exeter. There are a lot of greens to be negotiated here so I hope I have varied them and made them realistic enough.
Here are two acrylic paintings of the Exe Estuary at Topsham taken from two of the many photographs of Topsham sunsets posted on social media.
A painting demonstration in acrylic. A typical scene on the river Exe at Topsham. So many wonderful sunsets.
Here are three pictures from my visits to Ireland. The dark, broody mountain is Ben Bulben, near Sligo and immortalised by W B Yeats. The view across the mountains of Connemara is painted from the delightful Derryinver Harbour and there’ a storm approaching a Donegal farmstead.
Today’s picture is of the Dales village of Muker. The building in the foreground is a library . This will be one of a series of Dales paintings. This one use bamboo and ink along with watercolour washes.
