Towards Summerleaze from Widemouth – Bude
Watercolour on Arches rough paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial.
I’ve been at Bude heritage day today on the Bude Art Society stall. This is a demonstration painting for the benefit of onlookers, although most people were just browsing. I had a couple of people stop for a while and chat. It’s a shame the weather let us down as it kept numbers down. I was painting indoors though.
The Bude Art Society Summer exhibition is currently on and I’ve just received the good news that one of my pictures has sold. It was ‘Rainy Day In N.Y.C. This style of painting seems to to very well, so I need to do more like this 🙂
This is ‘Autumn Glory’, a watercolour on W&N NOT paper. 300lb. 1/2 imperial.
As I’m artist of the month for September on the FB techniques and tips group I was tasked with doing a step-by-step scene with autumn colours. This is the finished result. Photo reference came from Pixabay.
This is Mallorca – After Geoff Kersey. Watercolour on W&N NOT paper. 300lb. 1/2 imperial.
I haven’t done one of Geoff’s tutorials for a while now as I’ve been busy doing my own thing for exhibitions. I’m well behind on the available tutorials! This was painted on a new (to me) watercolour paper. Winsor and Newton. I must say I’m quite impressed with it and it’s a bit cheaper than Arches, my usual paper.
Another watercolour for the collection. This is “Ross Tiger – Grimsby”.
Watercolour on Bockingford NOT paper. 200lb. 1/2 imperial.
An iconic trawler that is berthed as a museum at The Alexandra Dock Grimsby. As Grimsby’s last traditional sidewinder ‘conventional trawler’, she represents a now virtually extinct breed of vessels that once made up the largest fishing fleet in the world.
