Provencal Hill village

Three little watercolours here which I really enjoyed doing, the first two were done for today's watercolour workshop and the Little Furgie tractor will be for the next. Once the initial pencil line work is established I work quickly and try to retain that excitement and vitality which watercolours can provide when the colours are fresh and not overworked. Mixing the colours on the paper instead of on the palette and letting the colours flow into each other is scary to do but very exciting, I let the colours appear to be what they are - watery

This Summer...

It's been a long time since my last newsletter and I hope you had a lovely Summer, saw some sunshine and maybe got away for a holiday.  I spent most of my time at the farm where I have the studio and stayed in my campervan so very much a busman's holiday with plenty of painting and occasionally helping out on the farm, I loved it!  
Today I delivered a couple of paintings to Bristol to the RWA open art competition final judging and soon I'll do the same for the ROI in London, fingers crossed.
So here is a little selection of what I've been doing with the paints, if you're interested to know more or would like to buy please just drop me an email.

CLASSES the oil and watercolour weekly classes are becoming quite popular so if you're in my area of North Oxfordshire and have always wanted to give it a try here's your chance!  email

Snowshill Lavender

It was almost like being back in Provence at the weekend, I went over to the Cotswolds proper and to Snowshill in particular to see how the lavender fields were looking.  Cameras everywhere! I was almost as interested in the people wandering about taking selfies and generally larking around in the flowers as anything else.

Peonies in Blue jar, £200

It's been so long since I posted here. But I've been very busy...honest and for the past few days I've been obcessed with Peonies, it's not enough that I have them growing in the garden I've been out to buy bunches of them too, unfortunately they don't live long so there's no messing about and I'm straight at them with the paints.

Belle isle farm..

I'm finding it hard to get out with the paints these days but did manage to get these two little ones finished over the weekend. The collection of barns is where my studio is...the one in the middle with the blue roof...which occasionally leaks!
