It was a little study to finish off the Art club term today. The reference photo was taken by the brilliant Patrick Byrd from PMP.

This, for me, was really an excercise in painting figures, as I don’t very often include figures in my work. I also did a fair bit of negative painting around the various shapes. It’s a LOT more detailed than some of my work, but I think the subject leant itself to this approach. I’ve kept the figures fairly loose though. Reference picture was Sandie Bell, from PMP.
I’ve just spent the last two days on a workshop with Jem Bowden at East Devon Arts. I had a great time and managed to complete this view of Sidmouth en Plein Air (outside). The second painting was completed this afternoon in my studio. Both were excercises in painting in an impressionistic style and focusing on skies. I think the first sky was more successful than the second, personally.

This is Bowermans Nose – Dartmoor. A watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial.
While trawling various sites for a suitable subject I came across this, taken from a pixabay photo. This is Bowermans Nose. It’s practically on my doorstep but I’m not familiar with it. Perhaps I need to explore Dartmoor more!
