Two snow paintings

Here are two watercolours of snow scenes; some old barns near Exmoor and George Nympton Church. The key is to make sure there are some strong darks to light up the snow. Both of these were painted as quickly and loosely as my level of ability allowed.

Two Worcestershire watercolours

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.

Two Exmoor paintings

Here are two watercolours painted today of Exmoor scenes. One is of the little village of Molland and St Mary’s church on the southern foothills of Exmoor and the other, a big landscape 22 inch x 15 inch of Landacre which has a little bridge – just visible – over the river Barle, in the north of Somerset. Both were painted quickly, the Molland picture also with bamboo pen and ink.

In celebration of Renvyle

Today I booked another week in Renvyle, Connemara for next May (2018). It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth and my personal favourite in my favourite country. So in celebration Iand anticipation I have painted this typical view today.
