I have been attending several Hester Berry demonstrations online run by the Pheonix Studio in Oxfordshire. I love her work and both these paintings are inspired by Hester’s work. I am lucky to be attending a full day’s workshop with her, here in Topsham, next week.
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.
I have been enjoying using Winsor and Newton water soluble oils. I will have to return to watercolour soon as I will forget how to paint in that medium!!
I have never painted in oils but my wife, Karen, bought me some water soluble oils for Christmas and I love them. Here’s my first effort. Lots to learn about how they work but excited about their potential.
This is Ferry Road in Topsham. I walk along here almost every day. Drawn in ink with a bamboo/matchstick (taught to me by John Hoar) and painted in watercolour.
Now settled in new house I’m painting again and enjoying both acrylic and watercolour. Here are four recent paintings.
Moving house recently has got in the way of painting but here are some watercolours painted over the last couple of months .
As quickly painted watercolour of trees beside a river. 50 minutes
