Rain approaching. 9x12 oils on board.


Did this one yesterday. I really didn`t know what to call it. I settled for this title because it does look like rain is approaching. It`s a miserable day at the least.

Mini Daff`s and Terracotta Pot. 6x8 oils on board.


I did this painting this morning Ala prima. I applied thick paint over lean for which you have`to do with wet on wet paint. About one hour. Not that I rush the painting to get it done, I can`t work any slower.

These Boats are called Narrow or Canal Boats. They are probably called narrow boats because they negotiate very narrow waterways such as places like the norfolk broads for one. Peop;e hire them for their holidays

Jack Vetriano copies.



These two copies of Jack Vetriano paintings were done by one of our club members, Colin. These are the sort of standard that some of our members can produce. Don`t you think that they are brilliant?

Mannon at Pin Mill. 9x12 oils on board.


I have painted this subject before, but I really fancied painting it again. I painted it today, Ala Prima, Wet into Wet. It`s a plein air method. It won`t allow you to do much detail.

Old Shack at Hayes. 9x12 oils on board.


I have been meaning to paint this old shack for some time now. I pass it a lot. I first noticed it when it was covered in snow. I will probably paint it again with snow.

Yorkshire Landscape. 12x17, oils on board.


I managed to brave my cold studio today to paint this landscape. Can`t say whether I`m happy with it or not.
