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.

Water, fishing boats and sunrise

Here are two watercolours painted this week. One is of fishing boats at Appledore in North Devon. The other is a sunrise over the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland. Two places that I love.
