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.

Norwich from Mousehold Heath

 

I’ve painted this exact scene once before, except it was in A4 format. I wanted to paint it again and use the larger A3 format so that I could more easily widen the vista just a bit, both east and west, to include a few more landmarks, in particular, to the east, St John’s Catholic Cathedral, and St Giles Church just to the fore of the cathedral.

That’s a part of the city I very much enjoy as it contains Willow Lane, where I went to junior school. No longer a school, now I believe solicitor’s offices. What else?

Porlock Weir

I thought this a relatively unspoiled small costal village, and I enjoyed wandering around the small galleries and cafes.

I managed to do a few sketches, and one pretty disastrous watercolour whilst there, but I gathered enough material to take back to the studio, supplemented with a few photographs, and this is the fist one that I have worked up as an acrylic.

I spent an age painting the foreground. All those blessed stones and pebbles, but I”m happy enough with the outcome.

River Avon, Salisbury Town Centre

on a sunny day in Salisbury, wandering around the town purchasing art materials, and looking at the market, it seemed a good idea to have some lunch. This cafe, The Salisbury Orangery, used to be, for many years, an art shop, called I think, ‘The Complete Artist’, or similar

The building has had a very fine restoration done to it, and is now a cafe that serves excellent coffees and food.

On a hot day, I sat outside on a Bench overlooking the river, and this was the view.

iPhone to hand I took some snaps, and this is the resulting painting.

I showed great patience painting. all the detail and there was much use of the detail brush. I’m quite pleased with the foliage and the water. but the buildings feel stark and lacking vigour. But overall a pleasing composititon.

River Nadder. Salisbury water meadows

It’s strange how when you start a painting you have a firm idea in your mind of how you want to paint it, and how you want it to look. With the Llanstaffan paintitng this worked pretty well. With this one, it didn’t.

That doesn’t mean that I”m displeased with the outcome, I think it’s generally OK, but it has more detail than I intended. I suspect it’s the nature of the composition that subconsciously determines the outcome.

River Nadder. Salisbury water meadows (2)

I’ve noted before, that it’s strange how when you start a painting you have a firm idea in your mind of how you want to paint it, and how you want it to look. As I wrote, with the Llanstaffan painting this worked pretty well. With this one, it was not so bad, except I disliked the foliage in the left foreground

Once again, that doesn’t mean that I’m displeased with the outcome, I think it’s OK, but it has more foreground  than I intended.

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.

Salisbury market Square (2)

I mentally made the trip back to Salisbury in summer when I painted this, Sitting in my studio on a collection of wet and cold winter days, it made me feel a bit warmer.

I completed this one after a bit of a Christmas lay off. It was a way of getting me back into painting mode. I tried to avoid all the detail, not entirely successfully, and I fear that this has made bits of it a a bit slapdash. But never mind, It’s done and I’m happy to offer it up.

Salisbury Water Meadows (3)

This is the last in the series of three small paintings of Salisbury Water Meadows. This one is the only oil in the set of three, and I particularly wanted to do this in oils as I felt that the texture of the old brickwork would paint better and be more effective in oils. I also wanted to capture the effect of the straw like reeds on the banks, which I thought might be more effective painted in oils.

Overall I am pleased with the colours and the fact that the brushwork turned out to be pretty much as I hoped it would be.

Sanddunes; Northumberland

This was really a throw away image that I had discarded as being of any use, then I looked again and quite like the misty, vague quality it possessed.

It persuaded me to try to do something experimental and. bit different.

I have scraped on all the background wrok with a very old, almost solid brush, and then scrapped away at the foreground with the edge of an old palette knife.

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.

Not sure where this came from or where it is other than I know it’s a London scene. If you recognise it please tell me!

I did this as a way of getting back into painting after taking a short break. I had reached a stage were it was too routine and I had no appetite for it. Almost any scene would do just as a means of trying again.

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.
