What a lovely old building!  I must have a root around inside sometime.

Gorgeous afternoon in Lymington yesterday.  A couple of hours painting the boats after the inevitable fish and chips! Yum!

'Fishing at Somerton'

Spring morning beside this lovely spot. Nattered to the fisherman about what might be caught in the canal now - apparently trout in this section. A bit different to when I was a lad - all you could hope for was gudgeon and shopping trolleys! 

Once I'd finished I sat on the warm grass and enjoyed a picnic lunch...lovely!

Oil on board, 10 x 12 inches, unframed.

Beside the Oxford Canal in Somerton

Had a good day in Somerton yesterday, beside the Oxford Canal.  Met some nice folks fishing there too before setting off to several other places to do more plein air painting.

'At the bottom of the garden'

Oil on board
10 x 8 inches

I can't work for very long without feeling the urge to visit the allotments or interesting local gardens...if there's a shed nearby, then I'm not far away.

'Approach to Epwell'

Oil on board, 10 x 14 inches.
Out and about painting in the lanes around my village. 

This is the second time I've painted scenes of the approach to the pretty north Oxfordshire village of Epwell.  Here's my earlier version.

'Two Shire Horses'

This week's demo for my oil painting class.  I'd been a little reluctant to use this because I considered it to be a bit too difficult for the class.  I was wrong!
'Good to be out of my comfort zone', was mentioned more than once!

Oil 10 x 8 inches

Anyway this is the demo I'd worked on before we started.
