Two watercolours

Here we have two recent watercolours painted with the great John Hoar. The west of Ireland (edge of the world) and a snowy North Devon. These were painted fast and free.

Painting in Norfolk

Famous the world over for its light and huge variety of painterly subjects, I’ve spent two days mainly plein air painting in North Norfolk with John Hoar around Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe. Here are the (mixed) results. It’s an inspiring place to paint.

Autumn Walk

There seems to be an autumnal theme in my current paintings. Maybe because we here in the UK have had a unusually warm and sunny summer, I’m driven to think of the beauty of the sudden cooler days and gradual changes of the leaves to vibrant russets, reds and oranges. Anyway, this scene is of the Welsh/Shropshire border near where my oldest and dear friend Mike lives. We went walking here in June.
