Delme Roundabout!

I sensibly avoided the sun yesterday on the Delme Roundabout in Fareham under the dual carriageway ….I think I might have forgotten how much effort a full Imperial sheet of plein air ink was!….or I’m getting old …or maybe it was just the heat 🥵

Dog Daisies in Fareham

#artistsupportpledge AVAILABLE

Beautiful Dog Daisies are absolutely everywhere this year here in #Hampshire and I have enjoyed grappling with them in the painting, near to home, and on the way to Bath last weekend.
I think the way they exist as a mass….and yet have singular identities in the foreground is part of the interest (and challenge) for me. I’m offering it as part of the artist support pledge so if you’d like to remember 2020 #dogdaisytastic summer….
£200 (+p&p) once dry😉
40x30cms
Oil on linen board
DM if interested please.

Lockdown Still Life

This has been living on the chair since I finished it last week. It’s my lockdown still life….all sorts of things which commemorate the lockdown period for me. The coffee pot used as the coffee machine gave up the ghost at the very start ☹️ Sunglasses (mine) worn by our eldest to remember the sun ☀️…and children back at home. 🤔 Scissors – a still life staple of #diebenkorn who I have been revisiting AND from my sewing and crochet activities. The copper planter from my first IGTV posts and Finger Grape handled bag – minus grapes 🎨
My wool bag, with 🇬🇧 to recall VE Day. Packaging tape and paper, and a sample #artistsupportpledge purchase. 🙏 @matthewburrowsstudio Paintings of both dogs….there have been lots of dog walks 🐾 “Bunny-rabbits” in oil – the watercolour version time lapse was my greatest Instagram hit so far! There’s a big pile of box easels all hand me downs (from departed relatives) – I spent a long time selecting a new easel for myself. (It’s suiting me very well 👍) There are lemons too recall the first Instagram Live I did with virtual art fair tour and demo in watercolour. Private Eye …and that might be it…

Plein Air in Southwick

Hot weather and lovely sunshine.

More dogs…#WIP

Working in Oil

WIP Currently working on simplifying shapes and marks in oil – I keep overworking…so painted the dogs (a lot) yesterday and then wiped and repainted the landscape watercolour from Sunday into oil.

When I get a wet paint brush in my hand (with watercolour or ink) my painting process kicks in automatically and the brush becomes an extension of me. I don’t think about whether I am drawing or painting – I think it’s probably somewhere in between.
When I pick up a brush with oil on the end it’s as though I’ve never painted before. So much to learn, evolve and develop in my work here – and so very motivating! 🎨😊

Oil sketch

A lovely start to my day. Lots of bright sunshine, changing light, loads of colour….got rather carried away with it all and over worked and over detailed it but will be back here again soon to take a less excited look! 🙄
Previously I have done this local subject in ink which is still available in the #artistsupportpledge for (£200 55x75cms sent rolled – DM if interested x )

Fareham Creek

Available #artistsupportpledge

Throw Back Thursday – Aber Uni.

Fish
Liverpool

A real blast from the past this #tbt – I’ve spent some time applying for an a-n bursary this morning 🤞 so nothing new to post but here’s a REALLY old thing from during my MA at Aberystwyth Uni. (Thank you iPhone search the date function!) I recall it was at a tutorial review – I can tell by the work it was after I’d scaled back my palette and was heavily into painting fish ….but also where I went. I see Liverpool 😊
Phone photography has also greatly improved 👍

Things to do this weekend? If you haven’t why don’t you draw with me??

I’ve done an introduction to drawing (two parts on Instagram TV) which will show you how to draw…..and how mindful it is! Have fun!! 😊 Part One.

View this post on Instagram

🔴 🟡 THE MINDFUL PROCESS OF DRAWING 🤔 PART ONE @kimwhitbyart #kimwhitbyart *THIS IS IN TWO PARTS as IGTV will not allow a film over 10 minutes unless millions of you follow me! Suitable for ADULTS, STUDENTS and any CHILDREN who are old enough to understand what I am explaining. I will aim to unpack the nuts and bolts of the basic drawing process and reflect on the absorbing nature of the act of observational drawing. This activity is about the process of observational drawing and less about the drawn product 😉 I will be…. Drawing from a still life in pencil. I will demonstrate circular shapes, simple perspective, ellipses and negative spaces ….all in less than 20 minutes! YOU WILL NEED 🤔 *Paper, card, envelope…..or anything you can draw on. *Pencil, biro, felt pen…..or anything you can draw with. *And SOME STILL LIFE ITEMS. Try to find items which are unusual and which you are less familiar with. Alternatively view more familiar objects in unexpected ways eg turn a bottle on its side/balance a shoe upside down…. Many thanks to Alain De Botton for capturing a few thoughts on drawing which I like to share with drawing students. I read this at the end of the video but think you might like to see them to read, as they really are very clever observations about the process of drawing. “The very act of drawing an object, however badly, swiftly takes the drawer from a woolly sense of what the object looks like to a precise awareness of its component parts and particularities.” Alain de Botton @alain_de_botton #drawing #drawingforall #drawingteaching @alain_de_botton #drawing #drawingforall #drawingteaching #mindfuldrawing #mindfulness #drawingprocess @etta_mac #drawingprocessvideo #isolationartschool #artistsupportpledge @artacademyondon @stbarbemuseum @westdeancollege @schoolhouseforart #artistsoninstagram #observationaldrawing @aspexportsmouth #calmingcontent

Sorry I Forgot!

In all the excitement of success yesterday (I had been trying to post a filmed demo for two days!) I completely overlooked reposting the links onto my WordPress and FB page.

As part of #isolationartschool I have made a film about a small aspect of using Ink. Please take a look if you’d like to…

There are two links as the length meant it refused to post as one whole session. 👍

Ink and Water-Based Drawing Skills. PART ONE. (The next half is posted separately as PART TWO) #isolationartschool 🔴 AN INTRODUCTION TO WATER BASED DRAWING with ink. PART ONE Suitable for anyone who has ever tried watercolour or would like to get started. The session includes video in real time and time-lapse. I will be demonstrating…. Using the paper as the white. Planning how I leave the lightest tones. Showing you briefly how I use ink, which you might like to try. If you fancy giving this a go PLEASE WATCH FIRST then set up you own subject matter and WORK FROM OBSERVATION 👍 Next time I will revisit this subject matter in watercolour! “I use ink frequently when teaching watercolour. It allows students to develop many of the skills required to work in water colour, and learn more about tone , without the added pressure of mixing colours; which is a skill in its own right.” YOU WILL NEED 🤔 Watercolour paper Brushes/water/mixing pots/pencil Ink 🕷🕸 (or an alternative) blotting paper (or kitchen paper) Includes ideas of alternative wet media. Part two is posted separately and is now live!

Wet Watercolour

The clue is in the name…’water-colour’…A regular phrase I use when teaching…..(Apologies to all I’ve taught/bored saying that!😉) Here are some suitably ‘wet’ watercolours made in Oxfordshire with Royal Talens watercolour which so suits the weather conditions this Spring! (They are transplanted into my mini watercolour travel palette) Thank you @royaltalensuk for the mention in your post on Instagram. I have really noticed the difference in the quality of pigment in your paints which compliments my treatment of watercolour here where the separation of the colour, in the water, is all part of the process. (You can see that separation in the detail shots further on in the post). #pleinair @britpleinair #watercolour #watercolor #Oxford #Oxfordshire #fields #flood #wetfields

Credit where credit’s due…Thank you to @barclaysuk 👍
Yesterday I found my flight to Dublin to teach @schoolhouseforart #ink on #Flybe was worthless. 🙁
Within 12 hours of reporting this Debit card booking to Barclays- the whole sum was recovered and back in my account! 😊 Before my bedtime!
I am now booked to fly with another airline ☘️
I had thought I was only covered in this manner with a credit card booking. Thank you Said for your 📞 help!

Small Ink Works for Bath Art Fair. Instagram post link!

View this post on Instagram

🤞that the beautiful people of Bath enjoy their London Plane Trees as much as I do. I’ve lots of small sketches framed, affordable and ready to bring with me. Here are a few edited snaps! And as you can see there’s the odd building too. I seem to recall Bath is well known for its architecture as well as its trees? 😉 My work frequently focusses on anything which has scale and is structural so… trees…buildings…boats…all those sorts of things catch my eye as an artist. @bathartfair takes place Friday 28th Feb (PV 6-9pm) Saturday 29th Feb and Sunday 1st March. Exact location please see above. Pop along if you’d like to see these in real life! #Bath #georgianarchitecture #londonplanetree #ink #pleinair #drawing @winsorandnewton @st_cuthberts_mill #saunderswaterford

I Spy…

I’m going to Ireland 😊

Time to get excited! My teaching trip to Ireland is confirmed and flight 🛩booked. Ireland here I come! 🇮🇪
I’m delighted to be heading to another beautiful part of the world. These images are from my personal Scottish adventure last Spring. This Spring I will be heading to The School House for Art, just outside of Dublin to teach two 2 day Ink Workshops. 21/22nd March and 23/24th March (or the courses are complimentary and you can do both) Some will be studio work but we hope to also work outside 🤞for good weather. There are a few places left so don’t wait too long if you were hoping to join us as well. Booking with @schoolhouseforart 🎨

Wet Watercolour.

The scale of these natural shapes beside these architectural ones is imposing. Even on the brightest Winter days, wet works on paper refuse to dry outside – and our current weather is less than helpful – so some finishing off indoors in necessary. #pleinair #ink #sketch #watercolour #georgianarchitecture #thecircusbath #Bath #londonplanetree @bathartfair @britpleinair @winsorandnewton @moleskine @royaltalensuk

The Old Man of Storr

I always enjoy #tbt so here goes…last year I spent some time painting on the Isle of Skye. I wanted very much to work near the Old Man of Storr and walked up twice to try to do so; the first day I was driven off by awful hail (and 100% soaked) and the next day despite having set off in sun I was suddenly enveloped in snow. I did manage a plein air grubby glove sketch with pencil on paper but it was safer to get down off the hill. Recently I used the sketch, video and my memory of the atmosphere to paint this ink #theisleofskye #ink #Scotland #throwbackthursday #oldmanofstorr #pleinair @schoolhouseforart @bathartfair @paintersonline @winsorandnewton @britpleinair #snow #mountains

Weeny oils and big drawing..

I really do like scale! Here are two weeny oil sketches from the end of my trip to Bath yesterday (A6) ….and an A3 double page pencil drawing from the start of my day. So much to now complete ….

Jane Austen’s House Museum

A bit late in the day (-after a busy trip to Bath to work today!) but here’s a #tbt post ….here I am 3 years ago at @janeaustenshouse museum working on my joint JAHM and @hantsculture commission. A very similar day as today as far as weather goes; cold but the first hint of Spring warmth in the sun later on. AND …I am excited to tell you I’ve been back there this year too and as of this week you can now buy some original artwork of Jane’s home by me, in their gift shop. Thank you JAHM and see you again for more painting in the Spring 💐 #janeausten #chawton #Hampshire #ink #watercolour @royaltalensuk @bathartfair

Drawing in ink.

I’ve been really enjoying my drawing recently. No exciting change in subject matter but that’s good for me… “can you just stay in one place for a while!” was an instruction during my MA ….like lots of you guys I suspect we are interested in so much subject matter we easily get distracted? So much to paint – so little time! Here’s a couple of small ones and a video of the other day’s post as it rather bleached out ….my editing no doubt!

Video with details from a previous post.

Watercolour Sketches.

This winter has been consistently wet, which makes outdoor working on paper challenging. Both because rain washes away the picture AND because the air is too humid to dry out washes before you can rework an area. Here are a few December sketches from an indoor refuge and a big window to look at the outside from inside!….bright sun and bare branches….cheating a bit but I’m sure you won’t tell anyone 🤫😉

Aberaeron Sketches

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! 😬

Hello 2020!

Hello 2020!
Here I am breaking radio silence after my social media ‘rest’ with recent sketches in Bath! I’m excited to be working there when possible as I prepare for @bathartfair in just over a month’s time. Aren’t the colours on the London Plane Tree trunks striking? Winter weather is never ideal for watercolour – even during a sunny periods it takes an age to dry….and before the sun came out this day the rain was less than helpful as you can see on the video 😕 – although I do quite like the pattern it leaves behind.
The art fair is Feb 28th 29th and 1st March. If you fancy it DM me for details 😉

Sketching in Bath

Exploring Bath with my A3 sketchbook yesterday- enjoyed chatting with the friendly locals (Hi! to all I gave cards to😉)
The first sketch, is one of my all time favourite views in Bath during the Winter; looking through the trees in #thecircusbath
I’ve got new ink work planned as I’ve been lucky to pick up a reserve place @bathartfair in late Feb 😊 (really excited to take part!) and my previous work in Bath is sold. Better get back there with my ink ASAP!

Cherry cake

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…..

Windsor Art Fair

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.
Thanks guys!

#TBT look through for Windsor Art Fair.

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!

First day of Hampshire Open Studios 2019! 😊

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.

Here is the first in a series on HampshireOpenStudios PV videos – this bit with my Spanish pictures I am showing. Hanging is mostly hung …..today! VERY DODGY FILMING 😬 So here’s a recap from my last post….. 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’ at Aspex Gallery, Scotland 🥾🥾and the Isle of Skye🏔🏕, spent time with my friends in 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!!!

Sanding boards for Recycling.

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!

Cull!

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.

Asparagus Time Lapse

Time for a #timelapse Still wet as you can see! We (my students and myself) made small watercolour studies on Saturday @theartacademylondon – Asparagus is a particularly good subject matter where the wetness of the Watercolour can be exploited to carry the colour variations of the paint up the stems. Remember guys “the clue’s in the name – ‘watercolour’! ” My photography needs some refinement…seems to be mostly inverted but you get the idea. Really liking the change in my paint brand, I can see a big difference in the pigment quality; so a big thanks to Royal Talens for this travel set. #watercolour #watercolor @royaltalensuk @royaltalens @moleskine #Asparagus #stilllife #observationalart ##rembrandtwatercolor #rembrandtwatercolour
