You know how it is when you make lots of work but you don’t get anywhere ….(part2) – Gunwarf Quays, Portsmouth. It’s been one of those weeks! On a more positive note I think I might now know where I’m heading next 🙂 – artistically – not geographically!
Month: May 2016
You know how it is when you make lots of work …but you don’t get anywhere….(part 1)- Lee on Solent. It’s been one of those weeks!
20x60cms aprox – I forgot to take a photo on site today. I’ve been doing a bit of drawing in Lee recently in preparation for the first, ‘Lee Festival of the Arts’ in the first week of July. Make a note in your diaries!
Hello to the people of Lee, who enjoyed having a peep over my shoulder whilst I worked on this illustrative commission today. The bottom/second is much improved- glad to complete it without blowing away!
Today a much bigger watercolour sketch (double A3 size) outside the Roman ruins of Porchester Castle.
Tiny sketchbook watercolour in Gunwarf Quays.
55x75cms A drawing today back in Gunwarf Quays, Portsmouth. I’m loving the pollarded trees poking up into the sky. To make it more fun for myself I left my brushes at home and took a bag of oil painting brushes instead. Luckily they were clean but they were rather stiff!
I’ve been drawing in Portsmouth today. Dull/bright/cloudy/sunny. The joys of working outside in the UK.
A rather changeable set of weather conditions today back in Hampshire. I rather wish I’d changed the composition too – I think it might work better cropped into portrait 🙁 Oil on board 20x30cms
Sometimes my work is very long in a ‘panoramic landscape direction’. The huge Scots Pine and Douglas Fir trees in Scotland, made for work that is very tall rather than very long. Spring is a little later there too; daffodils are still emerging 🙂
