Two recent paintings

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.

Watercolour demonstration

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

Recent watercolours

I needed to get back to painting watercolours. Here are two recent Spring flower paintings plus the Connemara coast and a view over the village of Chittlehampton in North Devon.
