Very hot weather recently in the UK. Today it started to break down. Here’s a watercolour looking towards Lynton from Exmoor with the rain on its way.
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.
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 .
There have been some stormy skies over Devon this week. Here are two watercolours attempting to capture them. A very threatening sky over Exeter, the cathedral and St Leonard’s church seen from my bike ride into Exeter ( just got home in time) and light and shade across the landscape in the other painting.
