Poppies along Crabtrees

Someone said there was a field of poppies along Crabtrees track, well maybe not quite a field but enough to keep me entertained with the gorgeous light last evening

Belle Isle Farm

So back to Garden Cottage now after a couple of weeks staying in a campervan on the farm where I have a studio. I managed to get plenty of work done including a very large commission (more later) and 9 plein air studies around the buildings, a little tractor driving and hay bale stacking occasionally and plenty of fresh air!

The old barn at Belle isle

Another scorcher yesterday, I'm staying on a small dairy farm and didn't have to travel far to find this shady spot to spend the afternoon!

Summer Light, Temple Mill

Really hot here today in Sibford, too hot to stay in the studio, so drove around for a while looking for a suitable subject but with some shade too...and it must be the 6th time I've painted here!

The White House

From the wednesday watercolour class, this is a new version of the demo I did on the day and much looser than the original. I originally got hung up with all the foliage and flowers (detail) and lost sight of the bigger shapes...something I'm always preaching!

A Drift of Cosmos...

There won't be many exhibitions I put up which don't display at least one watercolour of flowers. The Cosmos were growing in the garden last year and will provide another stunning show again this time.

Trawlers in Newlyn

I love the working fishing harbours in Cornwall, the sights, the sounds the smells and the general industry of the place, I tried to show this in the painting below rather than the pretty fishing harbour image one often sees in Cornish paintings, it's one of my favourite paintings in this show:
