Dusk at Quy Water near Cambridge - a study in oil
This is a small oil study painted on 10" x 12" board, at dusk at Quy Water near Cambridge. A couple of kayakers were paddling into the distance as I started so I put them in as I finished.

Plein air oil painting at Norwich Arts Festival with pochade box and balloons
This oil painting was done with one of the square 12"x12" plywood boards I told you in a previous blog that I got very cheap a few days ago. I have so many of these now, I am getting used to thinking up compositions that work OK in a square format. It's all about the balloons!

Oil painting of street party at Marshfield celebrating the royal wedding
Had a great day at the street party in Marshfield. While everyone else was eating, drinking and partying I, poor artist, was painting. It was a great occasion, and I enjoyed doing an oil painting amongst a large crowd of happy people celebrating the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton

Oil painting of a quiet valley near Bath
This is a work in progress, and represents about an hour and a half on location. I call this a quiet valley because I have never seen anyone there. It's a wonderful painting location and right now is full of spring flowers. At the moment oil painting is all I want to do, so I will run with it

Pen sketch at Norwich Cathedral
On my daughter's wedding day I got just the one chance to sketch - so I grasped it with both hands. Well, Moleskine sketchbook in one hand and pen in the other. They posed in the gateway to Norwich Cathedral. Strong sun and shadows. 3"x5" pen and crayon

Pen sketch in Kings Street Norwich on the eve of my daughter's wedding
I have a simple formula for quick sketching. A small Moleskine notebook so the sketch is always going to be small. In this case 3"x5". A rollerball type pen, and a water soluble monochrome crayon for shading. I did this in around ten minutes.

Oil painting of abandoned houses in the hills above Istaliff, Afghanistan
For me this is an unforgettable view in the hills above the war ravaged village of Istaliff. There was no time to paint; we had miles to walk, but it was an opportunity to deliberately exercise my visual memory. I took a photo for details, but really what counts is the memories I carried with me of the view. I started this oil painting much later back in the studio. It's 16"x16"
