#LastDay #Hampshire #PleinAir @HantsCulture @hantsopenstudios @AshcroftArts 😢

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.

55x75cms aprox. I wanted to try a larger watercolour sketch today. I got rather lost with it – it’s poorly drawn and I went over it rather erratically with a 6B pencil to try to salvage it. It looks better in the photo than in reality. The light from the walkway, in orange and green was what I was after.

A plein air, large (1.5x2metre) ink drawing for today. Up here at Butseldon Windmill it has been quite a challenge to stop everything from blowing away. Who’d have thought they would put a windmill in a windy spot!!
