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.

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?

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.”

Arundel trip

A trip to see the clever cheerful work of @hollyfrean “Holly’s Ark” in Zimmer Stuart Gallery in Arundel on a chilly day! 😍A mooch round the many interesting shops…..and a quick watercolour sketch or two by the castle where a striking avenue of autumn trees and colour, reflected in the moat….with some ducks.

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

Inktober

One from the other evening…and we’ve had some beautiful ones recently. It was time to leave so I just did Ink very quickly….obviously this scene is screaming watercolour but there wasn’t time. #BeaulieuHeath #ink #WNinktober #inktober #Hampshire #pleinair @britpleinair @winsorandnewton @seawhiteofbrighton #trees #sunset #Autumn

#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. The helpers found this quite tiring today too…see last pic! #trees #eucalyptus #spain #galicia #galifornia #fog #sun #jackrussell #watercolour #watercolor #sketching @moleskine

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

#RiasBaixas #Spain #rocks #pleinair

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

Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition selection.

Something from much earlier in the year – a barge in Topsham. These two pages from my cartridge sketchbook were the result of a whole batch of other drawings over a couple of days in ink – I just couldn’t seem to capture the bulk of the hull. This was my last attempt and I’m very pleased that it will be hanging on the wall in The Mall Galleries as part of the Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition in September. 😊

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!

#MottisfontOpenExhibition closing date 6th July #pleinair #watercolour #britpleinair @MottisfontNT #NationalTrust

Thinking about #watercolour #pleinair in #Hampshire #yesterday for the #MottisfontOpenExhibition closing date 6th July @MottisfontNT #NationalTrust But it was a #badluck day for me as the footpath was closed where I had worked previously and I couldn’t get the viewpoint I needed #nothappy with yesterday’s result.

My afternoon efforts were disrupted by snow clearing vehicles but managed a quick #oil #nocturne of #night #tobogganists. Looking better weather today 🤞

I had a lovely #gift and surprise from @seawhiteofbrighton @seawhiteshowroom over Christmas- some Watercolour journals! I had the great pleasure to trial one earlier in 2017 with both #ink and #watercolour #excellent #performance and am heading to #France to try them next week! So following an unexpected, unplanned and unwelcome break to my artwork, in late 2017…..here goes for posts in 2018….with best wishes to all ❤️

#VeryWindy #UpperQuay #CricketPitch looking into the #sun #drawing #ink #Fareham #Hampshire #sketching #trees #PleinAir #FarehamCreek I’ve been itching to paint these trees – I love the way they are framed with a halo of remaining leaves. Only time for a sketch in ink today….whilst battling with the unhelpful wind!

Good morning all! Another day of @hampshire_open_studios in #Fareham Many thanks to visitors yesterday and of course buyers especially 😍. So sorry if I missed you in the afternoon as I slipped out early to see #stereophonics and @feederofficial and @jakebugg 😱at #victorius. All excellent artists in musical terms not sure if they draw too or not? I’m here all day today and tomorrow. See you soon I hope x

#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 😉
