Another bike ride


Had a lovely ride on my bicycle today via the old railway line, now a tarmac trail for walkers and bicycles.   There are so many lovely views along the way, but this time I stopped and took a quick photo of this farmhouse...


I felt sure it would end up as a painting, so it wasn't surprising that the first thing I started drawing when I got home was this scene.  Initially was on going to do an ink outline then leave it for another day, but as soon as that dried, I just had to add watercolour.

Here it is on my easel and you'll notice I used artistic license in changing the building from white to rustic....I thought it added a bit more to the painting.


Not completed at this stage.  I'm trying out some new masking tape around the edges, and so far am very pleased with it.


Once I removed the tape, I could look at the painting objectively.  I can see I need to add more details to this.


Although I am currently working a some other artwork - Commission pieces - this painting is allowing me to switch my brain off and give them a break for a day.  I will then go back to my Commission work with fresh eyes.


I've added more detail now...

Oh Ann, I love it! There appears to be no end to the lovely places you get to use for inspiration!

It's lovely Ann. Looks like you're really enjoying your bike rides.

They are, lovely when I can continue to enjoy them later when I'm painting the views :)

Thanks Kim, it was nice to paint this when I got home :)

Absolutely am. Some (a lot) of people say this electric bike is 'cheating', but I say it gets us out there, seeing places we would miss in the car, plus it totally saves my knees from peddle strain. Makes it all soooo much better :)
