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 oils of beautiful North Devon. The last of summer Croyde Bay and The River Lyd on Exmoor.
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 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 .
As quickly painted watercolour of trees beside a river. 50 minutes
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.
This is a very loose painting where I had enormous fun with water flowing in great puddles over the sky area. I took my lead from a John Hoar painting and in his words, ‘took the courage in my hands and sploshed away. It was great fun and I was happy with the results .
