Bassenthwaite

Much as I admire the scenery, indeed am inspired by and in awe of it, I find it most difficult to paint. It’s not a landscape that I instinctively have sympathy with when it comes to colour and brushwork.

I repainted parts of this several times, in particular the large tree laden hill in the middle ground. Now that I’s complete I’m reasonably happy with it, in fact very happy with the water and foreground.

Bassenthwaite from Dodd’s Wood

This view is just a short hop along from the painting titled ‘Braithwaite’. I imagine you could almost patch them together as you do with photographs.

I was particular;y pleased with the foreground painting on this one, and the brush marks and tones seemed to work well for me. But once again it’s the distance that I feel, lets me down. This time I feel that perhaps the treatment is a bit too thin; but that’s just my opinion. I am never satisfied with what I paint.

Beached Fishing Boat

After being displeased with my last painting, even though lots of people liked it, I wasn’t happy, this one is far more to my liking. There are quite a lot of things about this that please me. I like the the application of the row of buildings in the background, and I’m very happy with the shingle and tufts of grass on the foreshore. The latter, small detail, but for me important.

I experimented with ways of representing the shingle, and I found the background of Radio 3 helped me once I started stippling the paint to get the effect. I feel the effect and the colours have worked well.

I took great pains over the boat itself. getting it right was more instinctive than planned.

Boston (USA) street scene

Boston (USA) street scene  (12′ x 16′  Unframed) (Oil on canvas)

It’s several years now since my trip to New York and Boston, and whist I did several New York oils, I only did one small acrylic of Boston, that being the Girder Bridge.

I returned to the album to see if there was anything that took my interest, and immediately wondered why I hadn’t previously selected this view to paint. I love the Colonial architecture of this part of the old town and the steep streets that rise and fall, adding great interest to the views as you look over the brow.

Bruges Christmas Market

I love Christmas Markets. At one time they were the sole province of European cities, but now lots of UK cities hold the same thing, and in truth they are all much the same by way of goods on offer. But there’s something about European Christmas Markets that have an atmosphere and style that’s just better, and more festive. Surrounded by bars and cafes, the ambience is irresistible.

As for the painting, I really like the way I have treated the trees and what’s behind them, and I’m pretty happy with the architecture, but I feel it went astray with the figures and foreground. But it ended up better than I thought it might.

Buttermere

When I saw this view from the end of Buttermere, I immediately visioned it as a potential painting. The view was scenic, well balanced and had good colour. I liked the water with its reflections, and overall I looked forward to painting it.

I’m disappointed. It started well enough and I am very happy with the sky and background hills, but the foliage gave me enormous trouble. I repainted it countless times and still didn’t get what I was after. Following on from that everything else was drab and unsatisfactory. I found myself duabng and dabbling rather than painting..

Cambridge Street (3)

I thought that I had done the last of the Cambridge series. I took a trip to Cambridge well over a year ago, possibly two years, I forget. As a result I did a few paintings of the city. Then I came upon this one, and decided to include it. I think it’s opposite King’s College, I’m not sure. Possibly someone will tell me.

When I painted this it felt like two separate pictures. I spent an age working the upper part of the picture, spending much time on the detail of brickwork and plastered walls. I left the busier lower part of the painting for later.
