Lymington Salt Marsh

Acrylic on Acrylic Board (circa A4) (Unframed)

This was an experiment. I decided to approach this small A4 oil sketch in a different way. I applied underpainting straight to the primed board without any marking out, and then drafted an approximate image over the under painting.

After that I painted this intentionally quickly, using only small and medium sized bristle brushes.

I began to get somewhere near t the effect that I was seeking, but not quite.

Maryport

Maryport Acrylic on Acrylic Board (A3 Unframed)

I visited Maryport whilst on a trip to The Lakes a couple of years ago. Going there was an afterthought, and I arrived late on a beautiful summer’s evening. At first I was not overly impressed by the town, perhaps not arriving at the best of times, as it had pretty much shut down for the day. However, when I reached the harbour my spirits were lifted.

The harbour is an interesting collection. Many of the boats looked well used and rather past their best, which of course makes them interesting, whilst the harbour surrounds were pretty much new waterside development, affording interesting marine views.

This made for an incongruous mix, and as I was painting this, I found myself, at one stage, almost doing two separate paintings. The new style development of buildings, I was painting accurately, almost like an architectural image, whereas the boats were receiving a broader and more loose treatment.

The evening light provided some stark tonal contrasts, and I wrestled with these duding the painting, but overall, I feel quite happy with the final outcome

Norwich Castle from The Forum

The Castle I suppose is an equally iconic Norwich view, but perhaps not this particular view. As I wander I like to find what is perhaps a less obvious or well rehearsed view of a famous image. This one I believe fits that description, because it’s not a full on view across the multi coloured market stalls, which is the usual angle taken by photographers.

I like this because of the building to the right part shields the view, and the terrific contrast it gives of light and shade, and in particular I like the large chimneys standing statuesque in front of the Castle, The tree is amazing, a myriad of twigs and branches, and more interesting in this December view where it is gloriously leafless. A bit difficult to paint, but worth the effort I felt.

Norwich from Mousehold

The idea of doing this was a preliminary to doing a similar scene as an A3., and hopefully doing this smaller version first, it might assist me in finding a way to paint in a looser style.

I’m pretty happy with the middle ground, but I feel I got a bit lost in the foreground.

River near Salisbury

This painting is taken from a photograph sent to me by my pal Christine, who saw this view on her early morning run, and stopped to snap it on her camera.

I really liked the composition, and after a bit of artistic license edting, this is what I painted.

The reflections were particularly appealing as they are pretty much a mirror image.

On this I have tried very hard to be broader and a bit less immediate with the marks I have made. It started off well enough with broad background under-painting, but the detail of foliage once more drew me in.

River Wensum. Norwich

River Wensum, Norwich on Acrylic Board (A3 Unframed)

I have to be very honest and admit that I saw this, as a photograph, shared on Social Media. It’s a view of my much loved home city, and an image I know well. I thought it was a super photograph and it just captured that part of the old city with which I was once so familiar. When `I lived thereI took it ll for granted, and now I live a distance from it, I miss it immensely.

As I had no intention of duplicating the photograph itself I felt sure that it wouldn’t cause any offence if I used it for a painting. I loved the reflections of the foliage and buildings in the water, although before I started the painting, I had no idea just how much trouble they would cause me to paint them.

Somewhere in Bruges?

I selected this image because I was keen to try out a nw technique (new to me), and an architectural theme seemed to be a way to go about it…or so I thought!

I think this is an image I made in Bruges ages ago, and what I was trying was watercolour over pen, rather than the reverse, which is what I have always done. For this I had to buy some new waterproof fine liner pens, to avoid the ink bleeding into the colour. The pens (Steadler) are very good and I like them. Not expensive, I’m glad I acquired them.

St Giles Church, Norwich from Grapes Hill flyover

St Giles is a well known medieval church, and in an old and interesting part of the city. The usual view would be from the street in which it lives, surrounded by old town houses and a popular bistro style shopping area.

This view is not picturesque or romantic. It looks at the tower of the church across the backs of the shops and town houses, and takes in car parks and yards.

It was the ordinariness, and the rooftops that attracted me, but when I came to paint it, the sky was the thing that I very much liked.
