Art Weekly 178 – Along the Great Ocean Road


16th August 2017

One of my few paintings of Australian landscape – something I’m aiming to correct.  On one of our recent trips, we had a wonderful drive along this beautiful coastline. Nothing like rolling waves and gigantic rocks to get the juices flowing!

Art Weekly 177 – Light on Skiathos

2nd August 2017

Summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and I recently spent a wonderful few days on the lovely island of Skiathos, painting up a storm with my good friend Yvonne, of Painting Skiathos (www.paintingskiathos.wordpress.com.) This little painting was one of the results.

We’re back in Koroni now, and although its not very touristy here, we still get our share of summer visitors, so its plenty of beach and relaxation time for us throughout August. Now that I’ve managed to re-organise ‘my studio’ into the corner of our dining room, there should hopefully be some new paintings coming along, and maybe even a long overdue Newsletter.

Art Weekly 175 – A Rooftop Glimpse of St Ives

30th May 2017

It’s certainly been a while since my last Art Weekly painting, and thanks to you all for being so patient. I am back ‘on board’ now with the brushes flying. Let’s hope it lasts and I don’t get sucked into the lethargy of the European summer!

We spent a few days in the lovely English town of St Ives a couple of years ago, and I’ve been meaning to paint this one since. It has everything I love; rooftops, water and a tower, albeit a totally different colour palette than I’m used to.

Over the Great Barrier #2

oc-11_overthegreatbarrier2

The photograph I painted this from was taken by James whilst flying over the Great Barrier, Reef in Queensland, Australia. It’s the second in a small series of abstracts and I just love the patterns that the reef makes in its brilliant blue waters.

Details of this painting can be found in Gallery – Oceans.

Art Weekly 173 – A Touch of Sunshine

aw-173-atouchofsunshine27th September 2016

I took this photo a few years ago in France, when I was tootling around the back roads of the Lot. I came to a break in the trees, and there tucked away amongst the sombre colours of the surrounding forest, was this little field of sunflowers. What else could I do, but screech to a halt and leap out with my camera!  It’s always so good to be able to capture these memories with paint.

Northern Territory Coral #1

oc-08_ntcoral1

This painting forms part of my ‘Oceans’ series and the photograph of this coral was taken by James in the Northern Territory of Australia. It seemed a unusually dull coloured coral, and I tried to keep my usual love for bright colours under control.

Details of this painting can be found in Gallery – Oceans.

Nearly Open, Honfleur

PN-07_NearlyOpen-Honfleur

Honfleur has long been one of my favourite towns in France and its well known throughout the world for its beautiful harbour, which I’ve painted a few times. On our last visit I also tried to photograph the colours of the cafes and restaurants lining the harbour which are still very much a huge part of Honfleur.
