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

Art work


I try to get over to Arlington Court at some point during the week, even if it is just to sketch.  Most times though I manage to set up my easel and do a painting - not always completed there at the time ( as with this one in the pic below ) but it gives me enough information to complete in my home studio.  Amazing how you can absorb the atmosphere by sitting there starting a painting, you remember it all when you are home, just as though you are still there.....isn't art amazing....I know I keep saying amazing, but it so is.



I am constantly seeing new locations to paint at Arlington, and take some photos to remind myself.  
















So happy to be the artist in residence at Arlington Court

    1. We are lucky, yes. There are a lot of National Trust properties around here. Admittedly some areas don't seem to have properties to visit, but often those areas have open spaces that are looked after by the National Trust. We try to make the most of them when we are away.
