Two watercolours and an oil.

Two watercolour landscapes of Heather on Exmoor and Heavy cloud over Woodbury Common in East Devon. The oil is one my very favourite views of the Vale of Evesham looking over towards Bredon Hill and The Malverns. The joy of painting.

Two watercolours

Enjoying a return to watercolour painting. Here are two very different studies: Pink Camellia amongst the daffodils and Landacre, River Barle, Exmoor. Both painted as freely and loosely as my ability allows.

Watercolour demonstration

I had a great time on Thursday talking to Creative arts students as part of the Festival of Discovery at the University of Exeter about watercolour impressionists such as Edward Seago, Edward Wesson and John Hoar. Then I did a quick demo in the style of the latter. The students were fantastic in their responses. Here’s the demonstration

Lockdown paintings

Like us all I’ve been spending most of my time indoors with just the occasional shop and regular daily exercise. All this has meant quite a lot of painting, ranging from John Hoar DVDs (I was due to go on one of his courses so substituted DVDs instead), my Connemara and Norfolk sketchbooks. Here’s a selection of them.
