Pink Panther

I just had to draw this character. At one time I had several figurines of this chap, and I loved them. All broken now. When I came across Pink Panther, I couldn`t resist drawing him. Listen to the Pink Panther tune:

I don`t know if i have ever posted this painting of our Sandy in the Snow. But if I have, I`m sorry, I love it. She was our dear Rotty. We loved her so much.

At Last, a painting. Although it is only a 8x8 small one, and a quickie at that, It has got me back into it again, thank God.

Yes, Willy Lotts Cottage again. I can`t stop painting this subject, I love it. As mentioned before, That tiny window nearest to the water, is the bedroom that I stayed in on a Painting Holiday at Flatford Mill some years ago. I went back there again on a Photographic course. That was brilliant also. I hope nobody has got fed up with seeing this subject yet.

This painting was done from a Photograph that my Blogger friend Ralph Parker gave me prmission to use. The light and shade with the dappled light showing through really got me excited, and when I saw it on his posting, I had`to paint it, and he kindly gave me permission to use his Photograph, It`s obviously different to the photo, I`m no detailed painter, but prefer to paint it this way.

I painted this one From a photograph. Yorkshire area. I got the photo from Photos for Artist on the website. They are free. I think I need to practice a bit more on drawing Sheep I think.

I went with our Club to a place called Foots Cray Meadows. Every member seemed to be painting This lovely Bridge called Five Arches. Although in my painting you can only g just see three Arches. But this is the angle that I wanted to paint it. I didn`t completely paint it there, I completed it In my studio. Yes Harry was there also.

A Norwich Church. St`Mary the Virgin. The figures are my son and his wife Ali. This is one of the places they took us too. It`s a great area to paint. lots of subjects.

Thursday, 20 September 2012

Another from Norwich. A small one this time. 8x8 quicky.

Monday, 17 September 2012

We went upto Norwich last Weekend to see our Son and our daughter in law. We had a great time. they drove us around the town and the countryside. I spotted this subject on the way back, and then my son and I went for a walk and I took a photo of this scene for a painting. The Road really attrected my eye, it was very light as I have depicted. Don`t forget to check out my sons book on Amazon Kindle. Don`t have a Kindle? then Search for- Kindle for PC. You can understand it better by going to- About me, on my Blog. Best of luck.

Monday, 3 September 2012

I mainly painted this on site. It is a 9x12 oil. I want to do a bigger and better one from this one. Looking towards Bough Beach.

Steady Harry, mind you don`t fall in mate. Harry crossing a footbridge after his Sketching.

Friday, 24 August 2012

Here are some photos of our trip to Ide Hill. Harry and i did a watercolour sketch of a pub. The others did a painting of a brilliant subject, ( we didn`t know about this subject until afterwards). harry and i will be going back to paint this subject hopefully soon.

This Lock keepers cottage is at flatford Mill. It was Originally Golding Gonstable`s Mill, John Comstables Father. It was built long after Constable`s time. It`s a fantastic spot to paint. I have been there a few times When I lived in Colchester, and since then also. I use`to call there when I was a Mechanic on breakdowns. I loved this part of the Country, and still do.

On the way back from painting another subject at chipstead, I took a photo of this subject and painted this from it. They are probably going for lunch, I saw them go into the Tigers Head.

Thursday, 9 August 2012

This subject was about 50yards away from where we were painting at Chipstead Wednesday before last. Apart from the figure I painted it from a photo that I took on the day. I added the figure because I thought it really needed it. Is the figure going to make a phone call? He has been taking photo`s because he has a camera in his hand.

Saturday, 4 August 2012

I painted this at a Village called Chipstead. I added the figure in my studio. It was a ghreat day.As Harry and I were about to cross over a footbridge, Three teachers were crossing with roughly 12 Children, you can see the backs of half of them, the others were further up trying to get past that car, it was a very narrow road, more like a path. Anyway, we managed to cross over the footbridge, two of them actually. we sorted out a subject each and when I had completed about half of the painting, the teachers and the children came back. It was amazing really. They all gathered around and they were looking at Harry`s drawing and my painting, looking so innocent and lovely, they all looked around the age of 3to4 yrs old. I asked the teachers if i could take a photo of them all, but she said that they were not allowed for that to happen. So I said could I take it from behind them, and she said I won`t see you take it will I? So that was it.

A painting of Pink Roses. They are in our garden and they look brilliant, the real ones that is. I painted them this morning, and really enjoyed painting them. I was having difficulty mixing for the Pink, I wasn`t satisfied, so I asked my wife Rosemary, and she said try Red and white, I said I don`t think so, it should be red and yellow. i tried Red and white and bingo. perhaps I should get her to mix my colours eh?

Greenwich Church.I did this painting years ago. I did a sketch of it and a photograph. I always try to do the painting from the sketch, but never succeed. I have`to refer to the photograph. I might have a go at doing it again from this painting. I haven`t got the photo anymore. P.S. Mind you I had`to paint the Chiddingstone Oast`s fron a pencil sketch.

Wednesday, 25 July 2012

Oast`s at Chiddingstone was created from a pencil sketch that I did years ago. I changed it a lot to the sketch. I have added a couple of figures. The Lady is taking a photo of the oast`s, and her Husband is looking on.

I have for some time fancied painting a Caravan. The Tree is imagination, well, so is the rest of the painting. I`m pleased with the Impressionistic Caravan.

Saturday, 14 July 2012

this was a small 6x8 painting that I just fancied painting. It was a quickie. Tied up.

Tuesday, 10 July 2012

This is the Acrylic painting I did from my Watercolour sketch at Hall Place. It`s slightly different from the sketch. Actually it is a lot different from the Sketch.

Sunday, 1 July 2012

Sketching at Hall place. My sketch and the usual mugshots. I shale do an Acrylic painting from this watercolour sketch that I did. Also Harry and I.

Tuesday, 26 June 2012

The first painting was done from the second painting. The second painting is the sketch that I did at Hall place. Plus Harry and I. Whilst I was painting the sketch, I heard a noise behind me and discovered a Photographer taking photos of me. Lets hope he was something to do with News papers, wishful thinking.

Monday, 25 June 2012

I found this painting amongst all the others. I don`t think I have posted this before. I rather like it, I hope you do. "Going Down"

Saturday, 16 June 2012
