Time is a strange thing…when I made these sketches I was very unhappy with them. Whilst having a tidy up (-yes it does happen occasionally) I rediscovered them. And now I like them a bit more. Perhaps it’s because I’m away from the subject and it reminds me of being there? Or maybe it’s because I’ve been drawing lots recently and these feel more like drawing?…either way. I’m daring to post them! 😬
Finished the setting up for my Winter weekend Open Studio event yesterday….and made finishing touches to the handmade ‘baubles’ in the video….which turned out to be very popular last year! I’ve lots of random behind the scene things to add to MyStory later….
Saturday 30th November 10-5pm and Sunday 1st December 11-5pm 2019.
It’s already a bit of a tradition that I do a rather ad hock #WIP 🎨Winter Open Studio …by putting out some 🎈 🎈🎈🎈and opening the🚪 here in Fareham! PO16 OBW
And I’m delighted to confirm this year’s dates (see above)
LOTS of affordable ORIGINAL art all ready for Burford Craft Fair 🎄in a couple of weeks…but if you can get to here this weekend you get first dibs! 🥳 (prices from £25 and upwards!) As well as my other works and a few seasonal bits and bobs! 🎅
DM if you can’t make the weekend as I can offer PV’s on Thursday 28th Nov (evening by appointment please 😉)
So I’ll be taking a rest from food still life for a while – 🥑🍋🍰but def feel like some larger studies with food await in the future. 🎨They have been great subjects to think about paint with…and fun! I’ll be taking them along to Burford Winter Craft Fair in December🤶🏻 (see details below) and also Bath Art Fair in February. DM for details – (framed works as seen on picture two £45-£280🎁) So why not pop along on December14th and grab an original painting as a gift for a foodie friend?🎄
One of the best things about being an artist (once the penny drops) is that you will always be learning, which in turn means you are never bored! I’ve been playing with small paintings recently. Thinking about paint. How it goes on. The things that you can do with watercolour and comparing the same thing in oil paint. Learning more about colour. Learning more about looking. Enjoying the painting journey! Which today will take me out and about with my ink…..
It’s the last day of @contemporaryartfairs #Windsor …..and the first time I’ve had chance to post! The event has been hectic with visitors to meet and share my work with. I’ve some very charming new collectors for which I am very grateful….THANK YOU but that means the wall behind me (see here at the PV on Friday) is now having to have new works added! See you later?? 10-5pm.
Painting demo/teaching point from last evening…. I will be in Windsor whilst it is #remembrancesunday this year, 🤞I remember to take the poppies to wear with me whilst I’m getting everything else packed! Oil on board 10×15 cms
Lots of little watercolours and oil sketches that will be coming to Windsor with me next week for Windsor Art Fair…..ideal small gifts….as well as my other work. If you’re planning on coming along please DM me for help. #watercolour #watercolor #oilpainting #stilllife #foodporn #mushrooms #pomegranate #sardine #garlic #fig
It’s choosing day for @contemporaryartfairs #Windsor AND #TBT and whilst digging things out I came across this un-posted one from the fantastic #CatherdralBeach in Spain. This one was made from the steps whilst the tide began to turn, which renders the beach inaccessible again until the next low tide. So here it is at home on the windowsill and a spin round of several mini paintings #watercolour and #oilpainting which I will be taking to next weeks Art Fair…perfect little gifts for the upcoming season of gift giving…I hope!
More mushrooms- this time in oil. With a few other things that have kept me busy this week so far. #mushrooms #oilpainting #watercolour #watercolor #artoninstagram @royaltalensuk #stilllife #pomegranates
I like painting fast but this was getting a bit stressful…..the sea was coming!! These amazing arches are visible only at low tide twice a day.

This picture says it all – probably my busiest Hampshire Open Studios days ever for me yesterday. This is my 6th year. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME. I was too busy hosting to paint!
The flowers were a bit dead yesterday, I wonder if I’ll get anywhere near finishing it today before they completely die, or whether I’ll be wiping the board as a failure. 🤞It’s a failure and I have lots more guests today 😊THIS YEAR I have the option to buy a PRINT of my work if the original out of range. They are pre order-able….so ask me more when you come! ☕️🚽August 18-22nd. 10-5pm NB 11-8pm on 22nd. East Street in Fareham.

It’s been a busy year! Almost as busy as this bee on my hollyhocks ! I put these pictures in my window today. Hanging is hung …..today! (video PV’s soon!)
One of the good things for me about Hampshire Open Studios, is the opportunity to take stock and see where I am and the things that have happened in the preceding year; both as events and as developments in my work. What mostly strikes me is how busy and well travelled I’ve been this year! Directly after last year’s Open Studios we went to Northern Spain ⛰🏖🥂(back there soon so watch this space..!), done battle with self portraits👩🏻🎨and the #zornpalette over the winter , been to Rome 😘, ‘residented’ in Aspexgallery, Scotland 🥾🥾and the Isle of Skye🏔🏕, spent time with my friends in my Lymington ⛵️and The Art Academy in London 🎨 (for two different things!), been a judge at Pintar Rapido in Chelsea 🙏 🐩🐕🐾, painted in Dorset with @britpleinair, been to Somerset and visited with @david_a_parfitt_ri 🖼, I’ve been to my first proper art fair in Newbury 🐎, walked, camped and painted in beautiful Arundel 🏰, and have an exhibition in the Mall Galleries to look forward to ….Ahhh!!! There are a few bits and bobs still to do – but I’m mostly ready. Hampshire Open Studios is next week!!!! starting week Saturday – Please come along and see all about it! ☕️🚽August 17-22nd. 10-5pm NB 11-8pm on 22nd. East Street in Fareham.

Feeling a little intrigued by some of my post sanded boards. I’m finding a few of them visually interesting whilst at the same time an alarm in my head has gone off …very loudly… lest I should turn into one of those faux ‘Turneresque’ type painters who sand things down and splatter paint to “get a nice effect” ❌❗️🔊 Anyway….have repainted the first coat of gesso on the other 50 boards after a sanding epic last evening!
A necessary sort out….for Hampshire Open Studios….for space….for peace of mind….and for boards to recycle to take to Northern Spain in 3 weeks time! I’m doing Hampshire Open Studios first though in two weeks 😬Please come along! August 17-22nd. ☕️🍪10-5pm NB 11-8pm on 22nd. East Street in Fareham.

More Asparagus today. Finished the little oil from yesterday and did another. There’s a better/dry! photograph of the #timelapse watercolour from yesterday at the end too. #oilpainting #observationalart #asparagus #allaprima @royaltalensuk

Soon it will be #hampshireopenstudios2019 and I am starting to focus on selecting things I have produced during this year. At the time of painting I put this one away (actually two boards 40x40cms) but now I look back at it, the brightness and structural trees, take me right back to that spot in the #newforest So maybe this one will make the cut? 🤔@hampshireopenstudios #trees #pleinair @britpleinair
Inspired by @leecraigmile to think about where I’d like to go back to on #TBT #throwbackthursday – Yes Skye is up there, but looming large in my diary is a return trip to #NorthernSpain #asturias #cantabria #Galicia ….it’s very like #scotland in many ways. Dramatic beaches. Quite. Mountains. Forest. Great seafood….but you have to swop the #whisky for #Albariño wine….so practically twin locations….oh and there are great things to paint. Head back through my Instagram posts to Sept 2018 to see 😉
Another from the sketches. I forgot to add this one yesterday. Scroll back to see how in a few short minutes I managed to completely ruin my earlier sketch! It’s a special skill of mine at the moment. #preferredthesketch ☹️ #pleinair #oilpainting #Arundel #Arundelcastle #rembrandtoilpaint @royalartsprize @royaltalens
#Repost @jeffinthecorps with @get_repost BEAUTIFUL ARUNDEL CASTLE AT SUNSET AFTER A RATHER HOT WALK with my watercolours….if you sew MyStory yesterday.
Early start to get out for a wonderful walk to Amberley and back, up one bank and return along the other from and to #arundel on the #warmestdayoftheyear we’ve now enjoyed our #ribeyesteak and #wine so of course it is time for @kimwhitbyart to do some more #pleinair #nofilter #westsussex #arundelcastle
PS …Oil Sketches 20 mins or so….sunsets happen quickly!!
THANK YOU KINGSROADCHELSEA ❤️- looking forward to seeing you all Saturday #Repost @kingsroadchelsea with @get_repost

Can’t wait to post…had so much admin and non artwork stuff to do I’ve had to wait to paint….the wait is over and having lots of fun this morning with these peonies #WIP #Workinprogress with the rain pouring down outside. #watercolour first and grabbed my teaching bag from yesterday @theartacademylondon and did a bit of wet drawing #watercolor #sketch @seawhiteofbrighton #oilpainting #observationalart #peonies #Hampshire #flowers
Having a sort out and remembering my fabulous trip to Skye and Glenbrittle earlier in the year. #oilpainting #observationalart #isleofskye #Glenbrittle @glenbrittlecampsite #vikingsettlement #fairypools #fairypoolsisleofskye @britpleinair #pleinair
My oil sketch from yesterday in Mudeford with @britpleinair. Still a bit shiny wet to photograph! I loved the colours in the sun…not my usual thing! also a few impressive Georgian Villas on the coast …couldn’t miss them out. Had a mixed sketchy sort of day…watercolour and ink too….with a seagull dropping a mixed media offering on my work too!
No 1 and video – A quick sketch while the van gets its MOT in Port Solent Marina! And another speedy one from the Isle of Wight on Saturday before attending a D Day 75th memorial event linked to Shanklin. No 2. This is the beach and cliff at Shanklin. Met some amazing 90+ aged veterans too!
So it’s finally here! Newbury Art Fair and the PV held this evening! Heaps of gratitude to all who travelled especially to see me 🙏 and lovely to meet other fair visitors too. Thank you new collectors ❤️ So looking forward to tomorrow and Sunday….😍 I’m rather tired after a long set up day and PV….beauty sleep required now before my Ink demo tomorrow afternoon ✒️💕 1-2pm @contemporaryartfairs @princestrust
The only one in oil from this day that survived the end of day wiping cull! From the top of Loch Lomond campsite #benlomond #lochlomond #Scotland #pleinair @britpleinair #mountains #camping #vanlife #oilpainting #observationalpainting
A chance to unpack and photograph! The winds of Glen Coe in the van, seem such a long time ago now which was at the start of my trip north. #oilsketch #glencoe #Scotland #pleinairpainting #panorama #mountain #mountains #details
A small sunset from last evening in Sligachan- that’s me on the hill in the last shot! Still lots to show you…I need to 📷 #isleofskye #scotland #pleinair #pleinairpainting #allaprima #mountain #sunset #vanlfe
Second and then first of my time out in the sun yesterday. I’d like to do this again and bigger so there would be more tree, more field stripes and more scaffolding! #pleinair @britpleinair #observationalart #trees #Spring #scaffolding @clipscaffoldingsouthern #Hampshire #Fareham #Boarhunt – that’s a place!
I have been having a studio sort out…..and now I’ve begun a website Spring clean too…during which I realised I’d never posted this! #selfportrait #selfie #workingfromlife #profile #oilpainting #zornpalette
Having a review! I knew that self portraiture had captured my interest – but seeing most of my efforts laid out in the hall – all 29 of them – is really a bit alarming!! And scary. Good to focus on one thing for a while though. #ink #watercolour #watercolor #saunderswaterford #mirrorselfie #selfportrait #workonpaper #profilepictures #profile #oilpainting #workingfromlife #portrait #drawing #zornpalette @st_cuthberts_mill @winsorandnewton

Today’s #WIP #workinprogress – Less glum? Open Studio final day Sunday 2nd December …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☕️! ….Thank you to today’s visitors! #HampshireOpenStudio #Hampshire #OpenStudio #pleinair @britpleinair
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
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.”
*SPACES!!* Do you have a really challenging person to buy for at Christmas? Are you a bit artistic (-or a lot!) and fancy making a unique gift for them instead?
GIFT MAKING OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP DAY @StBarbe Gallery and Museum Lymington Monday 3rd December.
Bring along an item that you associate with your recipient (perfume bottle/soft toy/ornament/bottle of favourite tipple/usual mug/key ring/sports item etc ….you know them best …put your thinking cap on!) and we will make an observational oil painting of the item as a gift they can keep forever. Obviously it could also be used as a birthday or other gift. No experience of oil paint required. The full days workshop will include some tuition and individual support AND all materials. PLEASE BOOK via St Barbe Art Gallery and Museum on 01590676969 😉🎨 NB real items please…not a photograph 👍
This time next week I shall be setting up for a very informal ‘Works In Progress’ Open Studio Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December 10-5pm 🎨….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?

Oh my goodness how addictive is this self portrait lark!! Mr Weller has a lot to answer for! Also appears very difficult to get a clear and accurate photograph…anyway here’s my latest effort 😉 PS Thank you for all the tips and comments along the way with these too ❤️ #oilpaint #portrait #selfportrait #artoninstagram #observation #observationalpainting @michaelweller
Trying to think a lot more about how I’d put the paint on and use colour if this was one of my watercolours. #rocks #beach #walkonthebeach #Asturia #sanvicentedelabarquera #northernspain #pleinair @britpleinair #landscape
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
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
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
Just delivered these three to the Chelsea Art Society’s 71st Open Exhibition 🤞🤞🤞- a first attempt at this one for me. Two untypical flower submissions from me; Sunflowers 40x40cms, Lavender in deep shade 40x40cms, from the unusually hot Summer months …and Blue Tent; Cantabria from our Northern Spain trip. 20x30cms Lots of lovely things being deposited whilst I was there at The Old Town Hall on #kingsroad and a few familiar faces! 😉 GOOD LUCK all my fellow non-members! #chelseaartsociety @chelseaartsociety
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
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 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 😉
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?
“Looking up Fareham West Street in the Evening Light” (oil on board, 20x20cms)- what a beautiful Summer we have had! – remember I am open until 9pm tomorrow 🍾🥂 so why not plan ahead and make a night of it? Fareham has several great independent, quality restaurants just a few hundred meters from my door. Antonio’s, Lauros, Villa Romana, Truffles.
A warm welcome an invitation to my Open Studio starting now! I am part of #hampshireopenstudios for the 4th year since my MA; it’s a FREE county wide annual event so please tell all your friends. Come and meet me – maybe see me work or any of the other 249!!!! artists taking part at
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!

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!
From last week in #hot #Exmouth @britpleinair #PleinAir #watercolour #Sun #Devon I need to work here again. What great #chimneys ! #TheBeachHouseExmouth Some passers by suggested I tagged #pebblebedvineyard Video – The Beach House Exmouth | Devon | The Beach House Exmouth http://www.thebeachhouseexmouth.co.uk via @pebblebedwines
#DaylightPhoto #detail #updated #OilPaint #Stocks #Scent #Flowers #AllaPrima #Night #evening #DaylightBulb I wish I could paint the scent for you…my favourite type of flower – white and scented! Thanks Justine. Don’t usually paint by daylight bulb….might be terrible in daylight and with my glasses on 😬😱 – Phew – it’s not too bad – thought the colour might be ropey!
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.
