Watercolour painted on holiday at Bagnoles-de-L'Orne Normandy France
Painted in watercolour at Bagnoles-de-L'Orne in the Normandy "Swiss Alpes", the river Orne flows through this little resort replete with casino and boating lake. I sat on the grass next to the lake to complete this little study.

Watercolour painted at the table waiting for lunch - Pont d'Ouilly Normandy France
A small watercolour painted at a table outside a french bistro at lunchtime. This was in Swiss Normandy as its called, and the very typical village street scene with road signs all contributed to making an enjoyable painting experience.

My old watercolor paint box
It's time to bin my old watercolor paint box. It's nearly 30 years old and is falling apart. Being made of "japanned" metal, it was expensive, but wow, it has lasted. An excellent investment.

A nice surprise - selling a watercolour of a cricket match in Nassington
I sold this small watercolour of a cricket match in the village of Nassington just yesterday, although I painted it in 2007. The purchaser discovered it on my old website and e-mailed me about it.

Small watercolour painting on the beach at Robin Hood's Bay
Like all these small watercolour paintings I am doing, this one is about 5"x8" This was done on the same weekend; all on our visit to the North East of England. Robin Hood's Bay is a charming - if very popular - fishing village on the East coast of England. The beach is always a good subject to paint - there are people, big skies and evocative sounds

Watercolour of a ruined castle
We stopped for lunch on our way North, and I thought a painting in watercolour of this ruined castle would be the perfect contract to the regular modern curves of the cooling towers I had painted only a couple of hours beforehand

Watercolour sketch in Lanzarotte
I can't remember anything about doing this watercolour sketch. All I remember is were on holiday in Lanzarotte - all my sketches are small and contained in one small sketchbook. Together they make a lovely memory, which I guess is one very good reason for doing them. Somehow they carry much more memory than photographs do, I find.

Watercolour sketch of hibiscus flowers
In contrast to the oil paintings I am working on right now, here is a little watercolour sketch from a very old sketch book I re-discovered a few days ago - dating back more than 20 years, from a family holiday in Lanzarote if I remember.
