I don`t know whether you would call this painting a Plein air painting, but I did it from our Bedroom window. The house is just over the road, and it belongs to friends of ours. Painting it from our bedroom was suggested by Haidee-Jo-Summers, a great Artist.

these Snow scenes are for all those blogers that are sweating at the moment, and also all those who like snow scenes.

friends of ours go away to Lanzarote for Christmas each year. And this last Christmas they brought back a little Present for us. Salt and pepper pot. Rosemary put it on a little shelf in our Kitchen, and I couldn`t resist painting it. So I took it down to my studio, and here it is. It`s the colours that really atracted me.

Snow Scene from a photograph. I can`t for the life of me complete a painting at Plein Air. I always (except on two occashions) have`to complete it in my studio. I would have loved to have painted this on site. But I am too chicken to stand the cold.

Another Thames Barge. I think Mariano will like this one, simply because it`s a seascape. These ships once apon a time plyed the World with cargo from the Thames Estuary. Beautiful boats. There are still a few left owned by private people. You can join up to be a member of one of these and also take holidays on them, as long as you are prepared to do your share of work aboard.

Another quicky. A steady Cycle ride. I have decided to paint some very quick paintings with not too much thought. Just slap the paint on and see what happens.

A Kent Landscape. Did this one yesterday afternoon. A sudden impulse, so it was a quick study to get my fingers Hands and Eyes going again. 9x12 Oils on Board.
