Two recent watercolours after a while painting in oils. A snowy Exmoor scene and a view of Derryinver in Connemara.
Two oils of beautiful North Devon. The last of summer Croyde Bay and The River Lyd on Exmoor.
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.
I had a wonderful week staying in Croyde with my five gorgeous grandchildren. On the day that wasn’t sunny we all walked to Baggy Point. This is a view looking back towards Croyde from the coastal path leading to Baggy Point.
I’m loving experimenting with oils at the moment including attending a great workshop by Hester Berry, a brilliant North Devon artist.?
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!!
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.
