Spring has sprung

This is the Mirk Esk behind Grosmont Engine sheds and I've awarded myself a gold star. Well worth the wet feet.

Key boards aren't waterproof

I discovered last week that keyboards much prefer being covered in oil paint to having water poured into them, hence the late posting of these two pictures. The last couple of weeks have been fantastic and the canvases are flying out the door and I think the watercolours will have to go on hold for now.

I'm getting a lot of requests for Robing Hood's Bay and Whitby pictures so expect more of these in the next few weeks.

Back in the Jurassic I started out painting in Watercolours. I've found it extremely hard to get back into but I'm getting there, I not going to post the early attempts though. Having made the move into Whitby I'm finding myself wanting to paint smaller scenes and to paint out in the fresh air (if you discount the smell of fish and chips).

Spring is sprung

We've had a lovely warm week here in Yorkshire and spring is well on the way. This painting is my impression of what the woods near Grosmont will look like in a couple of weeks (I couldn't wait).

Moorland sunset

I'm really getting into this new technique. Here is a close up to give you a better idea.
