Further afield on this occasion...


Back when we had a few days away.  Nice to look back over my photos and remember such lovely holidays especially on this occasions when I rode my bike from Poole🔗 to 
Upton Country Park 🔗.

if you look in the distance, there are some super yachts - they're made in Poole



 ~ What a great view ~

A look back to a blog post in 2012

Oh my, how time flies.   I was browsing through previous posts recently and came across this painting from 2012 of Dunkery Beacon on Exmoor - so thought I would add it again (some of you may never have seen it and for those of you who remember it, I apologise for my repetition).

March 2012 -

I have just completed another Atelier Interactive Acrylic - hopefully in an Impressionist style! 

Like all paintings, I started out covering the canvas with Gesso, on this occasion Grey and left it to dry completely.


Being a Moorland scene and there being little in the way of focal point, I decided to put the focus on the foreground.....




When I stood back and took an objective look, I felt that the path in the foreground actually took the Viewer
OUT of the painting, so I changed it....




adding some more darks to the base of the hill on the right and then some Mist over the dark hollow in the Valley....

 the finished painting               

 DUNKERY BEACON, EXMOOR




 I also added three sheep to the painting - did you see them?   (this sounds like a where's Wally/Waldo!)



This painting SOLD

Where does the week go

Before I know it, 

it's time for another of my

 'Art Escape to Arlington Court' painting days.

Again, I set up by the house.

This time I brought a different shaped Canvas with me,

I thought it would be nice to use a Box Canvas.


You will see that I am in the shade again.  Although the angle for the painting was different, it gave me the chance to get the tones and colours.


and I got a lovely surprise when I was offered a cup of tea.

Look what turned up
I thought it would be extremely churlish to refuse the scone,
so I enjoyed it - and it was
DELICIOUS



~ Have a lovely weekend all ~
