Patchings Art Festival

Excellent day at Patchings yesterday, chatted to lots of talented artists & bought a few things - 
it would be silly to go all that way & come away empty handed :)

Postcards from Portugal

Postcards from Albufeira, Portugal.
Inktense pencils & black pen
I have returned from holidays in Portugal & Tenerife 
with a ridiculous amount of subject material for future paintings. 
Now all I need is the time to do them!!

Blackrock Cottage, Glencoe

I painted Blackrock Cottage, Glencoe for my local art society Snow Challenge.
Not a subject I would usually tackle but I enjoyed the process and am happy with the result.
Starting with a photo I took several years ago without snow 
I referenced similar photos from the internet with snow.
Now for sale on my ETSY shop

#inktober 1

I used to do a lot of pen drawings but lately have got out of the habit. 
#inktober spurred me on to get the pens out.
Lavenham is full of lovely old half timbered buildings - most of which escaped the 
Victorian 'Black & White' habit - so have lovely silvery oak timbers. 
This suited the fact that my pen was running out so didn't give a hard black !

All the local churches are having their Flower Festivals at the moment.

Rumour has it there will also be a Dalek there :)

Pictures at an Exhibition

Some of my paintings on display with Spalding Arts & Crafts Society at the Springfield's Spring Flower & Daffodil Show earlier this month. Chatted to a lot of people but sadly no painting sales
