 #Hampshire #OpenStudios #August I collected my brochures today for @hampshire_open_studios I am really pleased to be taking part in this event for my third year…although my openings will be limited to the Bank Holiday weekend…I am really looking forward to meeting you and showing you all my stuff! Things from #Chawton @JaneAustenHouse earlier this year and #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear 2016- last year our Summer was really hectic with lots of secret filming #LAOTY at the same time as HOS!! So I am taking things at a slower pace this year….and even having a little holiday with my husband too! 🏛☀️See you in August 😉

What? Why? How? Where? When?

Answers to these questions, and how to make your own sketchbook from scratch this Saturday !



#sketchbooks #drawing #Hampshire @HantsCulture @AshcroftArts 

I’m all prepared for Saturday and looking forward to making sketchbooks, and talking about keeping them, with people at Ashcroft Art Centre in Fareham. 

Some places still available if you are free. This link should get you to the right part of the booking website 😀

I’ve spent the last day (or so) rehanging my work at Ashcroft Arts Centre for my exhibition there. We are now all ready for the first visitors later this afternoon when we open – and the cake is made!

Looking forward to meeting you all later on at the PV. Or call in before 21sr October 😀

A few more of this weeks sketches of the magnificent London Plane tree here at Ashcroft Arts Centre…….all except one which I found in a sketchbook from earlier in the year. Can you see which it is?

It’s going to be the closing day of Hampshire Open Studios 2016 tomorrow, on Bank Holiday Monday. 

Here’s a plein air Spring painting of Burseldon Windmill, one of Hampshire Cultural Trust’s properties.

Thank you to all who have travelled to see me, and thanks to Ashcroft Arts Centre and the Hampshire Cultural Trust for hosting me. 

NB Last chance to sign your form for a chance to win £100 to spend on art, as part of Open Studios too. We will close at 3pm. 

Thank you to all again.

A fantastically bright day for watercolour painting. Great light for shadows and colour. 

Remember there is a warm welcome, for you to bring along your sketchbook and work here too, as well as visiting the Open Studios event 🎨😃
