Painting outdoors in Cumbria!

I am not really one for painting in extreme conditions! So for me painting 'plein-air' when it is a bit chilly is as far as it goes. Had a great day today at Derwent Water painting (and selling) my goache landscapes. People were very kind with supporting my work, and their comments. Will definitely be doing more of this. My wife Janet was a great help, it is fun to work together on this.

Painting the view from conservatory

This is my first post using the blogger app on my phone. The painting is in gouache again which is becoming my preferred medium. So many ways to work with it.

Painting Fast Painting Loose - With Gouache.



Each of these paintings were completed in half an hour to 45 minutes. They are quite small, approx 4" x 8" I am enjoying the new processes I am discovering daily. Creating light effects of the Cumbrian landscape is my passion.

Re-launch of this blog and my new Artistic life!

After a very long time I have decided to start using this blog again. I am now living in the wonderful coastal town of Maryport in NW Cumbria. I hope to produce many of these gouache sketches of the nearby Lake District and coastal regions. Love making these small paintings that summarize a scene, so much still to discover! Image size is just 8" x 4 "
