Poverty Hill

The colours that come out on the moors when the heather is in bloom are simply stunning. Again this photo isn't doing the picture justice, i've redone the last two pictures which hopefully give you a better idea of the colours I keep wittering on about.

The Heather is out

The colours on this one haven't come out well, I'll take it out side and redo it when the rain stops. It's going to be moors moors moors for the next couple of weeks because the heather is out. This is up above Goathland, I'll have to look up the areas name on the map.

New gallery

If you have been regularly checking me out you will have noticed that I've been trying to get a new style going. The reason for this is that I'm setting up a gallery in whitby and want a way of painting buildings. Yes that's right I'm getting back into the gallery game, we're looking to move into what is now "Pybus fine arts" at the top end of church street. I don't have an opening date yet but will keep you posted.

Whitby beach

I decided to end the week with something that has a chance of making me some money, so the palette knife has made a come back.

Whitby harbour

I'm not sure that yesterday's picture is the way I want to go, I'm not sure I'd want it in the house to be honest. So in reaction to that I decided on an impressionistic one. As ever there will be a certain amount of tweaking over the next few days.

East pier

I’ve spent the last couple of days playing with a completely different approach. I have to admit it has been immensely enjoyable. There is a great freedom in stripping a scene down to its key ingredients and working in blocks of colour. But is it a good picture? I don’t know , I would greatly value your opinion so please feel free to leave a comment.
