Graffham West Sussex

So a rather soggy tour around the Graffham area on Saturday. Took my watercolours and found this amazing old Chestnut tree but too wet to continue painting…we walked though and clocked up another 14 miles. Love the way the stormy colours in my palette echo the sky! Check out my substitute water pot!! Dog waste bag folded over a gum Arabic bottle. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #observationalart #watercolor #watercolour #Chestnut #tree @royaltalensuk #rembrandtwatercolour #WestSussex #rain #paintingintherain @britpleinair #pleinair

Mudeford Quay Watercolour

My watercolour from yesterday in Mudeford with @britpleinair. Really struck by the colours in the sun…not my usual thing! Then a did an oil….post that later.

Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition selection.

Something from much earlier in the year – a barge in Topsham. These two pages from my cartridge sketchbook were the result of a whole batch of other drawings over a couple of days in ink – I just couldnโ€™t seem to capture the bulk of the hull. This was my last attempt and Iโ€™m very pleased that it will be hanging on the wall in The Mall Galleries as part of the Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition in September. ๐Ÿ˜Š
