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:

Exhibition update

The new exhibition began on Saturday with plenty of visitors and sales, I'm always unsure whether the good weather is a benefit or not.  But I'm not complaining.  The new work and change of subject matter is going down well I'm pleased to say and I'm finding new things to paint at the farm where I have my studio, like this wall of old rusty tools and cobwebs!

Pretty little boats

I painted these two little boats from a photo from last Summer's trip to Cornwall, as you can tell there was plenty of bright sunshine! I'm very busy organising for the upcoming expo at Swalcliffe Village hall which opens at 10 am this Saturday and runs until the 30th. I'm not sure there is enough wall space this year!
You can see more paintings here

New website...

After several months I can now launch my new website; http://nigelfletcher.co.uk/, it combines the 'Cotswold Sketchbook' mini paintings which started as a 'painting a day' back in May 2009 along with larger watercolours, oils and information about exhibitions and workshops. I'll be putting up the latest exhibition this time next week and will feature most of whats on the site now...hope you like it.
