At the beginning of 2017 I became the volunteer Artist-in-Residence @ Arlington Court National Trust Devon - Watch out for my posts about it.

This week's Challenges...


Using Gouche - my new pan set of Caran D'Ache
which activates quicker than watercolours and so far I
am quite pleased with them


***********************************************






 Not wishing to waste paper, I used the back of an old envelope for this
painting.  It worked for the tone of the painting so really I was half
way there before I even began!

Faringdon Countryside View


This View is from my Travel Sketchbook and done 'en plein air' - Faringdon near Oxford which, apart from being a lovely city to visit, also has wonderful countryside surrounding it.

Field Sketch - View


A local scene, captured before the lone tree loses its leaves this Autumn.

Reflection in the Sand - View

Taken from a photograph of William on the beach. The sand was still very wet and his reflection showed up like a mirror. As I like doing, I loaded my brush and did the whole picture with one load of paint but limited myself to doing it in one minute....
