Stansted Park and Newsletter

TEACHING AND NEWSLETTER …Finished reworking this autumnal trip to Stansted Park. Quite a weather contrast to today! This watercolour is 28x75cms and available to own!

I will be putting more teaching on my last News Letter of the year.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…Open Studio 1st and 2nd December 10-5pm

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL! – Open Studio 1st and 2nd December …I’ve been really enjoying the paint with my recent self portraits but I’ve been working without my glasses (as I would generally outside) so it’s interesting for me to now zoom in close and see how the paint is sitting. Fancy a close up look too? Head over this weekend 10-5pm to a very informal ‘Works In Progress’ Open Studio 🎨….lots to show and share from the Autumn…find out about my newest work…seasonal shopping opportunity🎄…and a chance to find out about my exciting plans for 2019!….and have a coffee☕️! ….What’s not to like? #HampshireOpenStudio #Hampshire #OpenStudio #pleinair @britpleinair

Self Portrait #4

I’m really not this serious!….any tips on how to make a self portrait look less grim gratefully received! So dull here today I had a daylight bulb and stood right next to the window.

Amgueddfa Torfaen Museum

An exciting parcel arrived today…the collaboration pieces from Plein Air in the Park at Amgueddfa Torfaen Museum in Pontypool! Reusable bags and lovely tea towels. I love Georgian buildings…and the odd tree. Memories of a lovely day! See you there next year? Contact them to buy and support their work. http://torfaenmuseum.org.uk/contact-us/ #teatowel #reducereuserecycle #reusable #ink #Pontypool #Torfaen #museum #amgueddfa #pleinair @britpleinair #amgueddfamuseumtorfaen

Eucalyptus trees and rocks.

Reworking and enlarging this from September in Spain. Thinking about brightening the paint and working more gesturally …..“The great outcrop of rocks on this amazing #surfersbeach – from the other direction … simple yet complex colours…and hazy spray afternoon light with the typical and tall eucalyptus tree shapes on the shore. Interesting to paint the sand markings of footprints and pitch lines.”

Landscape Artist of the Year 2018

Ha ha ha!!! How fun! And a genuine treat…finally got the chance to see all three of my artist friends (well done all three!) on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year’s third episode in Loch Fyne! @b.ramsey1973 @mariaroseartist @michaelweller So so so… pleased it wasn’t my choice on the day! All winners in my book. Having been on the programme I know the pressures of the day with its filming interruptions and all the fun too. Really hope you all had fun guys. ❤️ #skyartslandscapeartistoftheyear @skyartsartistoftheyear #pleinair @britpleinair #scotland #lochfyne #inveraray

Autumn sunset in the New Forest

One from the other evening….you know when the light just starts to taper off and the sun appears extra bright when it catches things and really peps up the colours at Autumn time?? #Autumn #Fall #pleinair @britpleinair #Hampshire #thenewforest #sunset #oilpainting #artistsoninstagram

#ThrowbackThursday #ALevelArtandDesign

And so as today is #throwbackthursday #tbt I’ve watched lots of you guys painting in beautiful Venice this Summer and it has made me recall my first trip there at 16/17?!!! (C1988) #wasieverthatyoung ? which was just prior to my A level Art and Design exam and I painted (can’t find that) photographed and printed in a darkroom (still got those) and drew (here it is)! from my trip….(and it was a very long coach trip from Aberaeron, West Wales indeed! ) and then submitted my Venetian inspired A level art. What strikes me most though…ink…mark making…tonal…structured…structural…composition broken by verticals…architecture…!!!! it’s all there. All the things that I still think about. All the things that define my artwork. Here is Venice at A level – from a photo…and Wellington Square Gardens – Pintar Rapido – from life. Of course then there was a very long gap whilst I was a Primary teacher and Mum. Anyone else got an historical parallel? I’d love to see. Please share 🤫 #noonelsewillknow ! #Venice #StMarksSquare #ink #inktober #WNinktober #Aberaeron #Wales #Ceredigion #wellingtonSquareGardens #KingsRoad #Chelsea #London #Alevelart #PintarRapido

Norley Wood in the New Forest, on Beaulieu Heath.

And the light went….so time to stop. Next time…but rain forecast tomorrow ☹️I’m working flat….as I would in ink or watercolour…and trying to be looser…aahhh!!! #oilpainting #pleinair @britpleinair #newforest #Hampshire #Autumn #trees #heath #beaulieuheath

Spanish fog and sun through the trees.

I have been working up a sketch drawn whilst on the move in Spain. It was a foggy day and then suddenly the sun shone through the tall trees and appeared red on the fog. It’s too long for a full shot on here….see My Instagram Story for more detail.

Campsite right on the beach…which also has rocks!

Really friendly site and lovely Spanish family next door. I don’t recall painting such a brightly coloured sea before…but that is UK living I suppose! I need to rephotograph (it so damn sunny here!) but my Instagram Story has the full development x

Siesta …and more painting this afternoon I hope!

Speedy sketches…#Spain

Speedy sketches in pencil, oil and watercolour, here in Northern Spain! So much to see, enjoy …and if there’s time paint! Really like the rough @jacksons_art #linenboards and strong #oilpaint for sketching. Time is tight so tomorrow I’ve decided to limit my pieces to a 30 minute maximum …wait and see….must rush..important appointment with a #gandt 😉

 #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 😉

#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??

Finally made it to Margate to see my work on the wall, alongside all the other Semi Finalists from Sky Landscape Artist of the Year…..and very close indeed to a great Turner exhibition! 😱

What an unexpectedly unusual year 2016 has been for me. Thanks for all the good wishes. 

🍾A very Happy New Year to all – family and friends of old, and fun new friends from 2016!🥂

Ps – Richard,Gregor,Anna,Titus,Phillip and Howard – I’ve photos of your pieces – message me if you like copies xx

#Goodbye #BackToIreland @DiscoverNI #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear #watercolour #WhiteParkBay @nationaltrust 

Here is one of the pieces that I made whilst tying to workout my commission on LAOTY, which I will be saying goodbye to this week – as it heads off to its new home…. back in beautiful Northern Ireland! It is a more accurate representation of the weather during my visit day, and although a real challenge to work under extreme conditions…I think I might try some more watercolour painting on a howling rainy windy beach in the future. It was invigorating. 

Many thanks for buying original artwork!

#LandscapeArtistOfTheYear #PleinAir #Hampshire #OilPaint #AlverValley @SkyArts #Hello #StoryVaultFilms @nationaltrust #frost #KeepMakingArt

Look what arrived yesterday! 3 DVD’s of memories. Hope you all got some too A Richard Allen, Gregor Henderson Art, Phillip Edwards, Titus Agbara, Anna Perlin, Howard Weaver, and that you are all busy making more art!
I’ve been trying to speed paint frost, this chilly but pretty morning in the Alver Valley. Amazing how many different colours there are in frosty vegetation! 

@nationaltrust #WhiteParkBay #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear @SkyArts #weather #ink @DiscoverNI


Many thanks to everyone who has contacted me with messages, shared things, Tweeted, retweeted, liked things …. ❤️ Here’s an alternative view of stunning White Park Bay, with perhaps a better representation of the weather conditions during my day there. As I dislike studio work I had made several pieces and had to choose one … it was a challenge! 

What next? Visit kimwhitby.com for news, events and teaching…

Another stunningly bright day here, with a fabulous blue sky, so I will post this from a similar day earlier this year, and remind you the final of Landscape Artist of the Year is tomorrow at 8pm on @SkyArts. (Or NowTV or TalkTalk) – ps …..I’m a finalist! 😊

#Finalist #Margate #Kent #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear @SkyArts #ink

Well here I am in Margate. Surprised to see myself as a semi finalist and flabbergasted to find myself a proper FINALIST too. Especially now I have watched all the competitors along the way. Well done to everyone! 

Many thanks for all you support, messages, shares, reTweets, likes …… you get the message ❤️

 

#HeatWinner! #Surprised #Stowe @SkyArts #ThankYouJudges #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear #wildcard #HNSVictory

Well I’ve been dying to tell people and now I can! 

How fantastic is that….winner of the wildcards heat six !….worth the night before camp-out in the camper van, to make sure I was there on time for the very early start on the next day. 

Make sure you watch next week to find out which of the wildcards makes the semi final!

I’ll be definitely watching!

Lovely to meet all the other ‘wildcards’ and the programme behind the scenes people who couldn’t have been nicer. Thanks too judges and presenters; who really are like that in real life. 

Quite an experience!

#1DayToGo #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear #wildcard #watercolour #sketchbook #commission

Please share this reminder with anyone you think will be interested, as it’s almost time for me to hide behind the sofa – my wildcard heat of Landscape Artist of the Year is on Tuesday at 8pm!

Here’s a photo of two lovely current commissions in production; reproductions of two double sketchbook pages from my time in the Naval Historic Dockyards in Portsmouth in 2014. 

It is quite a strange exercise reproducing your own work. Already in that time my process has changed considerably. There are ways of using watercolour which I know lots more about and I might have approached the whole subject differently but at the same time my commissioners have chosen views that they have a special attachment to, so I need to keep as close to my original work as possible. Really hope they like them!

Remembering an eventful Summer….here’s a sketchbook page from my trip to Stowe- so that’s a clue for what to look for on Tuesday on TV – a crazy woman working in ink in the wildcard area! – and next to it some notes from the great Marc Dalessio workshop I went to in Wales at the Welsh Academy of Art.

EXCITING NEWS “I can now tell people that I have been involved with the Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2016 TV programme and that at some point between now and the episode on the 15th November I will be on TV!” And that’s all I can say for now.

I am so sorry if I haven’t contacted you personally yet. I have so many people I want to tell and it has been very difficult keeping this news to myself. I’ll be in touch!
