At Keston Common. 6x8 Acrylic

Harry and I plein air at keston Common yesterday. It was cold but Sunny. A wonderful thing happened Whilst we were painting, a lady came over with a tray of Two large mugs of Tea, and a plate of biscuits. We took a photo of the tray on the leafy ground. Theres Harry packing up, me painting the subject, the tray and the painting. I normally complete a painting at home but although I`m not happy with it but thought I would show it in the raw. I shale paint a bigger one from this.

Moored Barge. Half Imperial, Watercolour.

A typical Cottage and farm at Tandridge Kent. This was painted from a photograph that I had taken whilst painting the Barn that I mentioned before. It`s a beautiful Area, with several subjects to paint from. Harry and I were painting there about two weeks ago, he painted the Cottage and I painted the Barn. We will certainly be going back there weather permitting.

Casting off the Boat. 9x12, Acrylics on board.

I did this painting from a photograph that a friend sent me. The boats belong to him and he built them himself, clever lad eh? He is also a very good Artist, very detailed.
I`m afraid I haven`t done his boats justice.
