A collage of recent landscape work. Sizes vary from 10 x 10 inches to 24 x 24 inches.  I really enjoy the challenge of creating the various green shades.  When it cools off a bit I will get back out there and do more plein air work, until then I will stay cool painting landscapes in my studio 🙂

Summer Exhibition coming soon!

The paintings shown above and several others will be shown during The Summer Exhibition at The Hunter Gallery in Bury St. Edmunds.
I will be stopping by the gallery on the opening day. I hope you are able to stop by and see all the beautiful work on show.
Dates: 19th of May- 2nd of July 2018

 

 

 

Plein air painting: Yellow fields

On Saturday I set out to do some plein air painting. I didn’t have a particular place in mind but I knew I didn’t want to go too far from home. After 2 hours searching for inspiration, I followed a footpath to a clearing and beautiful yellow fields (oilseed rape). It only took me an hour to paint and after all the walking I was too tired to do another. I really would like to spend up to 3hrs painting, so I will have a plan next time!

Private art lessons: Recent classes

This is a photo from a recent private art lesson which was given in my home studio. We worked on composition, colour mixing, palette knife techniques and how to paint water.
