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!

San Vincente de la Barquera rocks on the beach with Eucalyptus trees.

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.

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 😉

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

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!

Well – this really is the end of the commission posts. Here are some small versions of the six selected peices- I will let you know if the intended merchandising is realized incorporating them!

Watercolour of The Copper at Jane Austen’s House Museum 76x102cms Kim Whitby ©2017

Ink on Paper, Winter Sun at Jane Austen’s House Museum, Kim Whitby © 2017 150x55cms approx 

All that remains to say is what a special and unique experience it was to work and create in such an influential place….Jane Austen has been my favourite writer since my A levels many years ago. So you can imagine what a great honour it was to be invited to work there. 

Many thanks to Hampshire Cultural Trust, Jane Austen’s House Museum and all the lovely staff and volunteers at Chawton. ❤️

I will be opening my studio as part of Hampshire Open Studios in Fareham on August 26,27,28th if you would like to see some of the peices and sketchbooks in real life. All welcome

February 28th 2017

The last chilly trips to Jane Austen House Museum, with the review and selection from my time here by Hampshire Cultural Trust and the museum in partnership. 

I spread all my things out in the education room ….and a few weeks later a final selection of six works was made. These are intended as merchandising starting points….let you know next week what was selected!

How tardy am I posting a whole day late!!! Apologies! – doubtless some clever person at JAHM will know a Jane Austen quote about lateness to properly chastise me with!!

Saturday 18th February 

The museum is still closed to the public so I had a solitary trip into the garden today as it was forecast sunny. The photos tell the tale…..

Many thanks for all the support and messages from everyone over recent weeks. 😍

Lots of memories and anticipation today from the Summer – What a lot of diverse weather we had during the filming and fabulous opportunities to see great new places and landscapes!

Tune into Sky Arts @ 8pm to see the final!!
