Willy Lotts Cottage. 12x17", oils on board.

This is the second time I have painted this scene. I love the area and can`t wait to get back there again and get painting. I have explained Willy Lotts Cottage before, but will do so again. Willy was a great Artist friend of John Constable. He gave Constable lessons in and around this Area. Willy lived in this Cottage and that is where it gets it`s name from. I also stayed in the Cottage for a week when I went there on a weeks painting course. Also I have stayed in Constables Fathers Mill. This Mill and the cottage now belongs to the National Trust and they use it to give lessons on not only Art, but most everything else. It`s a great place to stay.

Norfolk Colt. 6x8, oils on board.

this drawing is just to fill in a gap. It`s a Norfolk Colt, obviously bred in Norfolk. I have done several paintings but I am not happy with them. It`s that rut that we all go through now and then, why?

A way down, Leigh on sea.9x12, oils on board.

I did this painting almost plein Air about four years ago. I still haven`t got anything fresh to post, so I thought I had better post something. I have painted several subjects but not happy with. I think I am going through that phase that we all go through occasionally.

Heavy Clouds.

This painting took me one hour to do and it was from a photo that Jill Berry gave me permission to use. As usual it is my interpritation of the subject and not a true likeness of the subject. Thank you jill.
