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 😉

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!!
What? Why? How? Where? When?
Answers to these questions, and how to make your own sketchbook from scratch this Saturday !
Some places still available if you are free. This link should get you to the right part of the booking website 😀
I then started work on something new, but the Welsh weather kept me firmly undercover ☹️
Some really great colours in the mud and silage though 😀
The weather has been so warm today – and the sun bright and casting long shadows by the time I started these. Then at the last few moments before the sun went down the field became very brightly orange. This is the last very quick watercolour impression of how they seemed to glow against the dark of the field behind.
Had a good start to the day here in the sunny Aberaeron by the riverside. Starting to prepare for a later autumn exhibition.
Here’s another view in Sussex – but can’t tell you where………! It’s very secluded.
Amazing to have some very special recent new followers – but a little inhibiting !
Oh well here goes…. It’s been rather windy here today. Although I spent a fair amount of time with some oil painting – I did get out to try some outdoor water colour – with the odd bulldog clip to hold the pages still!- and watched some birds as they did their stuff. Have a lovely werkend.
Well here it all is – ready to roll – tomorrow at the Portsmouth Festivities Spice Island Art Trail in Old Portsmouth from 11am until 4pm! See you there.
Started some drawing down by the creek today.
