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

Working from life trying to capture accurately the essence of shapes, colours and tones; I have lately been rather taken with some flowering pot plants at home. Here are our cornflowers in pots at the sunny front of our house. #pleinair #oilpaint #cornflowers #allaprima #markmaking #sunlight #Fareham @britpleinair #artoninstagram

#watercolour #sketching #peony #flowers #blooms I bought some marked down peonies in #Tesco again this year….it must be #Summer. These are pale and #scented but I’m looking forward to the lipstick pink ones hitting the shops as they have fabulous centres; I painted them last year.

#OilPain #chilli #StillLife #sun

This is the brother of a chilli we ate last night in the pizza I made. It was hot! 
Had a bit of time to paint today but it ended up getting a bit too tight. I think I’d like a few very small linen canvases (note to self)- but this linen surface is lovely to work on. 

I’ve lots of watercolour, oil and ink in production in Jane Austen’s House Museum where I am busy during the week….can’t wait to be able to share some with you. 

#Pears #Last9Days #9DiwrnodOlaf #Aberaeron 

   
   
I was going to put these on a table but the box held them in such a good pile and has a great subtle pattern. 

This is fresh – so it’s not available in Lloyd Motors, Aberaeron – where there are only 9 days left to see my work and shop for original artwork gifts. Christmas is coming!

Contact me via my website contact page if you’d like to buy the pears!

(Pears 3 after MW)

 (Pears 1&2, after Michael Weller)

Today I have been staying indoors with some pears. It was quite dull here so I put them on the window ledge. I can see the attraction of the shapes but like most things I have got hung up on too much detail first time round…
