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.

On Inishbofin

Inishbofin is a small island in the west of Ireland. You get a small ferry from the tiny port of Cleggan . I love it and here’s a painting overlooking the harbour where the ferry docks. If you get a chance to go- seize it!

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.

Recent watercolours 

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.
