Two recent watercolours after a while painting in oils. A snowy Exmoor scene and a view of Derryinver in Connemara.
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.
