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.
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 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.
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 .
The sun is setting over Connemara’s famous Twelve Pins or Bens in watercolour
I’m having a great time painting pictures of the beautiful west coast of Ireland, this time in acrylic.
