Plein Air February & March

Below are the pictures I’ve painted over the last couple of months.

After a snowy spell we turned up to a misty Plaistow in Surrey. I found the morning very frustrating as the day turned out to be a lovely sunny afternoon. Too late for the painting.


The following week was Shamley Green and I did struggle getting a composition going. This is an extract from the painting, the rest was scrubbed out.

I really enjoyed Hambledon after a serious gripe about the narrowness of the Surrey lanes. I spent the morning in the graveyard with the grave digger and daffodils, and a  good time in the pub with the other artists afterwards.


Great Bookham was cold and grey, with the easiest place to paint – another graveyard! And no food at the pub.


Finally I spent a fascinating morning at the 180th Chertsey Ploughing Match.
