Here are two watercolours of iconic Worcestershire views (I lived in Worcestershire for over 30 years and have family and friends there too). Here we have the Malvern Hills from the Cotswold outcrop of Bredon Hill along with a view of Worcester Cathedral across the River Severn.
This is a watercolour of the farm where I stayed when painting in Norfolk last week; some lovely autumn skies.
Famous the world over for its light and huge variety of painterly subjects, I’ve spent two days mainly plein air painting in North Norfolk with John Hoar around Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe. Here are the (mixed) results. It’s an inspiring place to paint.
Continuing my on and around Exmoor series of paintings; this is a view across the moorland between (and above) North Molton in Devon and Simonsbath in Somerset.
Beginning a series of paintings across and around Exmoor. Exmoor is an area of hilly moorland situated in West Somerset and north Devon . It is also the source of the River Exe, which gives it, and the city of Exeter, its name. Here are two hamlet/villages around the gateway to the moor; the little churchyard at George Nympton ( near the town of South Molton) and Bolham near the town of Tiverton.
Here are two fairly local scenes. (1) a remote Exmoor cottage called Badgercombe ( John Hoar) took us there on one of his wonderful painting courses (2) one of my very favourite views of the Clifton Suspension bridge over the Avon Gorge at Bristol. I never tire of this view and it brings to mind my beautiful son, his wife and their two beautiful children who used to live in Clifton.
