Autumn colour and field shapes.

Out with my sketchbook this afternoon. I know it’s supposed to be ink…but the squeeze of sun under the clouds and Autumn colours got the better of my intentions. #ink #inctober2018 #wninktober #inktober #watercolour @moleskine @winsorandnewton #Fareham #Hampshire #Autumn

Fabulous Art Materials for my Adventure!

Anyone joining me on my trip? I’ve spent the last couple of days packing up for an adventure. About 4 years ago I made my first wet painting carrier from a design shared by the great #pleinair artist I follow @marc_dalessio and I have just repeated the plan (slightly adapted) in a larger scale. I attended a fabulous course by him in 2016 at #TheWelshAcademyArt. I also had a lovely delivery from @jacksons_art to go with my @moleskine sketchbooks and favourite @winsorandnewton #drawingink and #oilpaint . I will be trying out some @jacksons_art #linenboards , #watercolours and @rosemarybrushes for the first time. I am taking the same @seawhiteofbrighton sketchbook that my #royalsocietyofmarineartists entry came from! (So excited to be heading to @mallgalleries later in the Autumn …..I’m very random in how my sketchbooks get filled up!) really looking forward to getting off later today. Who’s coming too?

Different day…

A very different day here…no visitors…no excuse to eat cake!….as I have been updating my website following on from Hampshire Open Studios. However I realised too that I’ve never blogged this …and it’s much less fattening!

I have fresh work available and news about my teaching which is booking fast so DON’T DELAY! kimwhitby.com @st_barbe.org.uk

I’m looking forward to a campervan adventure starting Friday and then new teaching, with #SketchesAndSips starting last Fridays of the month! 7-9pm See my teaching page for details kimwhitby.com

Goodbye and Thank you Hampshire Open Studios 2018….see you in St Barbe?

And so it’s time to turn off the lovely “Georgian- ish blue glass” daylight bulbs, take down the ribbons and call time on #hampshireopenstudios 2018!

An exhausting week for me as I had so many truly interesting – and well informed – visitors to keep me on my toes. A real pleasure to talk with you all and welcome you into my space. Thank you for taking the time to to come and see my work. 🙏

I look forward to renewing my acquaintance with you all in November!

In the few quiet moments during the event I have had a chance to explore sharing my work (with those who couldn’t make it in person) in a virtual way; online and in #timelapse . The time lapses have proved popular – so here is a short clip from a real time video. Which do you prefer?

BOOKING NOW – at St Barbe Gallery and Museum in Lymington (New Forest) for my 5 week Watercolour and Ink course which starts in mid Sept. DON’T MISS OUT! Kim Whitby BEd Hons MA

https://stbarbe-museum.org.uk

Also give me 2 or 3 days and my teaching at home will be online – I am especially looking forward to #SketchesAndSips last Fridays of the month!

Over the M27 #Fareham #Hampshire

Over the M27 on the footpath and very soon you are in beautiful rural #Hampshire. I was after the downwards facing fan of stubble in the far field, and the upwards facing fan of nettle plants…..but this is how it came out.

Tried out my new @CassArt titanium white too…seems v good!

#HampshireOpenStudios #FirstDay #PVTour

All ready for my first day of @hantsopenstudios in #Fareham. Looking forward to meeting everyone….in fact I met a few yesterday (while I was setting up) who arrived early in error….one an amazing lady of 92 who gained her Art BA at the age of 74!Don’t worry if you are a little more ordinary than that – all welcome!

#Athens #Greece #pleinair work of the #Acropolis #Parthenon #TempleOfZeus #watercolour #sketchbook #AncientAgoraOfAthens

Some recent quick #Athens #Greece #pleinair work of the #Acropolis #Parthenon #TempleOfZeus #watercolour #sketchbook #AncientAgoraOfAthens made during our lovely holiday to an amazing place. It was really challenging to work in such hot dry conditions in watercolour and difficult to do justice to the fabulous setting and its history. The colours from the sun were really complex to represent especially on the marble rock formations, and the vegetation too took a while to colour match. Anyone who would like to see these in real life – why not pop along to #hampshireopenstudios over #bankholidayweekend in #fareham 😉

Another evening painting of stocks but there were only mixed colours to be had in the shops; so this time pink and white!

A #watercolour #sketching trip to #Wallington to the #WallingtonVillageFete this afternoon #Fareham #Hampshire. It was the perfect #SummersDay and a traditional #British #fete with all the trimmings…..donkeys, Punch and Judy, stalls, games, marching band, ice cream, dog show, duck racing, food, flags…..you get the idea ☀️🍺🐶🐴🐓🦃🌸💐🍔🍦🏆🎪🎼🚂🎡🖼⛱🎯🥁👯‍♂️👯‍♂️👯‍♂️

I’ve now got a bit of a Blogging backlog….things to post and not time to do it…☹️

 #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 😉

The sea went out!

It’s not hot anymore – just normal Summer!

Lovely Georgian buildings in this old part of Fareham.

#Fareham #PleinAir #britpleinair #OilPaint #GeorgianArchitecture #FarehamRedBrick #Summer #Sun #EastStreet I began the top one Thursday when the wind was surprisingly chilly – I had intended to finish it but decided to start again….I finished it at the end but the composition is not quite right. #Australia – Hello guys! I see lots of activity on my website stats from down there – I’m guessing #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear is going out there??
