Month: October 2021

September Plein Air and Studio Work

Leatherhead was the theme of the month as we had a small exhibition at the Institute. I painted the High Street from three angles , which were well recieved by the local community.

This is from our holiday to Derbyshire. I liked the tree on the far hill and the row of cottages.

I was asked to demonstrate a watercolour at Leatherhead Art Club at the last minute. I had painted this view of Venice before and felt I could reproduce the painting in the meeting. Plus it was an interesting view that people might find intimidating to start.

Grand Canal

I was commissioned to paint this view for Grace and Flavour
