For a neighbour

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

This was one of those pictures I took a while ago, and wanted to paint for quite a while. It’s a neighbour’s house in the street not far away, but with the hulk of Cawsand Beacon rising in the background. I’ve always liked this road.

I’ve been back to the brushes at last. This year I am determined to paint more often. I need the relaxation! Meanwhile, thanks to the folks who commissioned paintings last year … here’s hoping I get some more in 2018!


Outline sketch for a Christmas Card

A simple village scene based on a photo I have of the snow that fell 6-7 years ago. Not had any since, sadly! Still, I think it has the right atmosphere.
