Here is a little watercolour painting which was sold through The Geallery in Grosmont, last month. Dancing with stars. Although I paint mostly landscapes, I sometimes wander into imaginative imagery, influenced no doubt, by the illustrated fairy tales which inspired me to draw and paint.

Dancing with stars.

Here are two other watercolour paintings of my imaginary woods from the same year.

“In the Woods I”

“In the Woods II”

This much larger painting, in oils, which started out as a night time view of Runswick Bay, has a central tree rather than a forest, but then all trees are magical.

Whitby Art Fair is this weekend, Saturday 30 June + Sunday 1 July 2018, at Whitby Spa, Whity, North Yorkshire. 10am til 4pm.
Lots of artists are taking part, including me. Sunny forecast, if you’re near Whitby, do drop in.
Sorry I haven’t updated recently, I’ve been working on commissions, and spent the last few weeks on Skye, I hope to find time to frame a few small watercolours I painted there before Whitby Art Fair.
PS. 3 July. Thank you to all those who came to see Whitby artists! See you again next year, or at Staithes Art Festival in mid September.

I’ve been reworking this painting. It was shown at Staithes art festival last year, but I felt it needed something so it waited patiently on my wall, instead of going to a gallery. In between commissions, I took the time to rework the sky and its reflection. Et voila.

Sea and Sky

May is probably the most flowered month in England. I hope you have found time to walk in the woods, bluebells and wild garlic have been wonderful. Here are two recent paintings.

My latest one, Sandsend. Started last month, interrupted while I flew to the South of France to see my father and brothers. Now I’m back, and the painting is finished.

This is my latest commission, Loftus Bluebell Woods, oil on stretched canvas, 50x70cm. Soon to be sent accross the big pond…
PS. 29 May. This painting is now in Canada.

In February, wanting to hibernate, I have been sitting quietly with watercolours and my smallest brushes. And then setting these paintings in pendants. Yes, an original painting you can wear! Sizes from 25mm to 30mm. The first few are now in Wold Pottery gallery, Loftus.

in Wold Pottery, Loftus.

There is a list of the pendants on Facebook, if you want to have a look…

And now I shall pick up bigger brushes, for I have new commissions to paint: Loftus Bluebell Woods, and Hummersea, for the walls of a condo in Florida…
