Path at Watendland
Oil on Canvas 2011
Another legacy from November in the Lake District. There were some moments when the sun shone, the sky was blue and the Autumn colours just glowed. Watendland was a small place with an intriguing name where we sketched and painted - and it was just one of those special days.

Walking at Straiton
Oil on board 20 x 20"

I don't usually have big skies - and I don't usually have such big clouds - but I felt this painting needed a large sky area. Its a view from a hill and when you're this high up the sky can seem vast. I spent time doing watercolour sketches of skies and clouds last year but all in good weather. Maybe now I could move onto having an even lower horizon line - though I think I'd better do some more cloud studies first!

Edge of the Loch
Oil on board 18 x 14"
|At the moment I seem to have the blues ! I seem to be making blue the main colour - ultramarine to be specific. Its not that I've bought a new ultramarine - a different make, a different quality - I can get carried away with a new colour sometimes. This is the same old blue I've always used. But I'm enjoying the intensity of it. And I can't think why.|
