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

Sunset over Woolacombe

I am still doing paintings for the upcoming Gallery when it opens next month.  This time I have headed for the sea and a sunset.  I wanted to give this painting a pastel feel....



This measures 20" x 15"


this has now set me off on a whole new set of paintings, well ideas anyway, all I have to do now is get on with them!


Have a great weekend

  2. Lovely. I feel as if I have just stepped out onto the beach and can feel my troubles lifting.

    I think I know what you mean about being on a roll. I look forward to seeing what it produces.

    1. Thank you John, it's nice to have feedback and the fact you point out a particular part of a painting helps enormously. I intend to do a post about the Gallery and, providing I get agreement from the other Exhibitors, I'll take some photos.

  16. Hi, Ann,
    I really love this painting. If you apply these techniques to figures, I'm certain, you'll handle it! If you have any Q, please leave comments at my blog. I'll think of it and later, I'll answer them within my style (*note: find your own style and techniques.)
    Oh, yes, your blog is full of warm humour. Please keep it that brings us smiile.
    Best wishes, Sadami
