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

Delighted to receive this photo from a Landscape Artist of the Year viewer today- a photo of my two exhibition pieces in the Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize Exhibition 2018. If you can’t get to Oriel Ynys Môn on Anglesey, maybe you can get to Windsor Castle, where En Plein Air takes place on Saturday? My first time there. Come and say hi!

Remembering an eventful Summer….here’s a sketchbook page from my trip to Stowe- so that’s a clue for what to look for on Tuesday on TV – a crazy woman working in ink in the wildcard area! – and next to it some notes from the great Marc Dalessio workshop I went to in Wales at the Welsh Academy of Art.
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 😀
This is the first time I’ve completely painted an oil painting in the rain! My eye was caught by the yellow leaves and the building.
Great to meet everyone (and have an excuse to pop into the dry) this morning. There are only three more days of the exhibition (closing Monday eve and closed Sunday) for those of you still planning to come 🙂
Great to have my exhibition opening this morning here in Lloyd Motors Aberaeron. Bore Da!
One of my favourite paintings that I will be showing in the Arddangosfa Aberaeron, Lloyd Motors. Boats are such great shapes and I love drawing and painting them. Combine this with the bland, yet complex colours of Autumn, and I could paint this scene many times over.
I will be setting up and hanging today!!!! Come and see it and me….. 23-30th November, in Aberaeron.
See my website for full details!
Here is my shortlisted – (but not finalist) Sunday Times Watercolour piece; ‘Stones on a slate windowsill’. It will be in my Aberaeron exhibition 23-30th November. It shows stones collected from the beach in Aberaeron, by my husband as a child, in Aberaeron, on the windowsill of my Inlaws house.
My finalist piece, ‘Queue for HMS Victory’, is currently on tour in Guilford as part of the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2015.
I love the grey sky of Autumn – come and see my tree, church and sky picture of Aberaeron soon in Lloyd Motors ‘Showroom’, Aberaeron.
Exhibition 23-30th November – See my website News and Events page for details or call the showroom for opening times- See you there?
I will be there Thursday – Monday 30th., and at the Saturday 21st PV!
This one here is half of a pair – the right hand side, and this will be in Lloyd Motors Showroom soon!
Visit my website for full exhibition details 🙂
Here’s one of the oil paintings that will form part of my exhibition in Aberaeron November 23-30th. 2015. It’s detail features on the poster. Hope to see you there!
See website- News and events- for details.
I’ve been busy finishing off for the Aberaeron exhibition recently. These jugs from our Welsh dresser are more successful in watercolour I think. Interesting that as the jugs were hand painted – it translates well into a painting – the marks are already ‘brush shaped’ on the decoration. I think I read/heard somewhere that the houses decoration were often painted by children?
A rainy start to the day, but it has cleared up as I finish up with this one in Aberaeron today.
The boats are all safely out of the harbour for the winter months in Aberaeron, Ceredigion.
I’m not a sailor in anyway, or a marine artist – I just like the shape of boats. This is a 2 page drawing, image aprox 142cm X 47cm. It’s very hard to take a ‘non grey’ photograph of a drawing, so this is a bit dull – it’s much brighter in real life.
Reworking an oil plein air sketch on cardboard, of the beach and harbour wall in Aberaeron, West Wales, on to board.
The view from a similar spot. Isn’t it odd how flat a photo makes everything look? And how lovely and sunny it was – it was actually a very cold morning indeed! I had sketched the wall the day before and had a quick oil paint there the following morning.
Working from watercolour into oil.
I made a very quick colour sketch of the sun going down and hitting the Georgian buildings in Aberaeron. Now I’m seeing what I can do with it in oil.
Had a good start to the day here in the sunny Aberaeron by the riverside. Starting to prepare for a later autumn exhibition.
