these two scenes are from one photograph. I wanted to paint two compositions. Although I am an Impressionistic painter, these two are more so.

Street Lamp at farnborough. 9x12 oils on board.

This is another scene at farnborough. I`s on the path to the church. You can see a bit of the church in the background. The actual scene is more tempting than the painting seems. I think no Artist could resist painting it.

Photos at Farnborough.

these are the photos I promised to post. This is at farnborough on a plein air trip.
Before we set off, It looked a poor day for painting, but it turned out a nice one after all.

Rain on the way. 9x12 oils on board.

A friend of mine sent me a photo of this subject and asked if I would like to paint it. he wanted to see my interpritation of it. He hasn`t completed his yet, so when he does, I`m sure it will show mine up. By the way this scene is in the Cotswolds.

Scene at Farnborough. 9x12 oils on board

I did this painting plein air yesterday. It was a terrific experience, not only doing the painting but because tons of people kept coming up to us and asking all sorts of questions, you know, the usual ones such as, How long have you been painting? I wish I could paint. Do you belong to a club, and the best one was, isn`t it lovely. We all want those remarks don`t we? I will try to post some photos of some of the people. They were mostly Ramblers.

Light against Dark. 9x12. Oils on board.

I found an old black and white photograph of this subject, and decided to throw caution to the wind and go mad with colour. This is the result. I titled it "Light against Dark" because that is the basics of a painting. If nothing else, this is what I aim for in a painting.
