I’m missing Ireland and hope to get back soon so painted a view of Roundstone Harbour thanks to the inspiration of a watercolour by John Hoar and a lovely video shot by John Redmond.
Two recent watercolours after a while painting in oils. A snowy Exmoor scene and a view of Derryinver in Connemara.
Two oils of beautiful North Devon. The last of summer Croyde Bay and The River Lyd on Exmoor.
Two paintings, one oil and one watercolour. The oil is of Ladram Bay looking over to Sidmouth on the Jurassic coast in East Devon with its characteristic red sandstone cliffs. The watercolour is a quick and loose sketch of some orange roses in our garden.
A very quick splosh of some red roses and white hibiscus flowers.
I had a wonderful week staying in Croyde with my five gorgeous grandchildren. On the day that wasn’t sunny we all walked to Baggy Point. This is a view looking back towards Croyde from the coastal path leading to Baggy Point.
I had a great time on Thursday talking to Creative arts students as part of the Festival of Discovery at the University of Exeter about watercolour impressionists such as Edward Seago, Edward Wesson and John Hoar. Then I did a quick demo in the style of the latter. The students were fantastic in their responses. Here’s the demonstration
I’m loving experimenting with oils at the moment including attending a great workshop by Hester Berry, a brilliant North Devon artist.?
