Sunday 12th February This Blog was written in very cold February….how different the weather is today….😉 Even in a warm house it has taken the better part of the day to work up some of the washes and dry them on these peices. I have my initial work and sketchbook images to work from – …

Friday 10th February  Really getting going now with the Bake house and Donkey Carriage (not a cart as I had rudely referred to it before correctly reading the information plaque!) Whilst drawing the carts 10 wheel spokes I had rather a mathematical challenge to establish the correct number of degrees between each. However the interesting …

Wednesday 8th February.  Today I am making use of the arrival of the larger paper (which will fit a full sized watercolour of the Bakehouse copper and full size Donkey Clark wheel. Both of which are 24″ across).  I am struggling with the composition – which I thought I’d planned. So I spent some …

Tuesday 7th February… So here I am in action…in the sun! Whoops – looks like Darren the decorator has inadvertently ‘bombed’ my photo sanding the window inside! ….I’ve edited him out!  Lovely flowery table covering protection for the path too…(which I inherited from Mum – used to be on her kitchen table.) I have to …

Friday 3rd February.  Earlier start – terrible wet forecast- pessimistic about achieving a full day as I need to work outdoors in oil colour……window cleaners are here too! The Donkey carriage has been unsettling me. It is sited in a barn – not unrealistic in the way it would have been stored but as it …

Wednesday 1st February! Wet wet wet! Where is the sun to help with some good colours and tones? Never mind – table top beckons… I have three watercolour table tops on the go. Today I wanted to put more, deeper, and some brighter washes with wax resist on to them. It took longer than expected …

More table watercolour and Donkey Cart afternoon. A positively balmy day to work – mild enough to go hatless indoors! Yes that’s right! That warm!! (Last week required thermals, trousers and overalls, with 5 layers on top!) – and a hat at all times – and a scarf. Indoors and out! Early washes on a table …

Table top watercolour. Start of the day Tuesday 31st January. Thinking about the writing table top. Beginning again with colour mixing, wet in wet, dry brushes, mark making with tools to show the marks! and looking at darkest and lightest tones on the surface in my sketchbook prior to a larger piece. I could do …

The Bake House and Kitchen, Wednesday 25th January.  The kitchen is interesting – to me especially as I like to cook – but I worry it is rather twee! Haven’t quite got inside its visual interest yet – but the bake house ….used by the whole village ….has a fabulous ‘copper’ where water would also …
