Quick Sketches with Watercolour & Ink.

Painted with Chroma Atelier Acrylics on 90x30cm Canvas
One of the two Annes who attend my Thursday evening Painting Class brought the Cardoons to paint this week. I love Cardoons my friend Dona gave me one for the garden it is huge, my husband hates mowing round it, he tells me I’m not in a stately home just a 2 up 2 down terrace cottage. But I like a statement piece.
Trying to paint the heads without too much detail, but defining them was difficult, I think I have succeeded but will look again after a couple of days with fresh eyes. I will also note the remarks by the public as it sits on the easel in the gallery.
I took a photograph at Nevill Holt Leicestershire many years before I started painting and it was the first time I said, to myself, one day I’m going to paint that. I did paint it 15 years ago and then painted it again last year. Comparing the two this edition has more colour, freedom and confidence.
Second painting of the day on Southwold Harbour, I love the quickness of watrcolour & ink, the style seems to suit rural and coastal themes. Sitting up straight on my stool I could just see Southwold lighthouse between the hollyhocks.
A beautiful day dodging showers with my friend Rosanne painting at Southwold Harbour in Suffolk yesterday. We are so lucky to be surrounded by beautiful places in Norfolk, & Suffolk just over the border.
Watercolour & Ink painted en plein air at one of my favourite places on the Norfolk Broads. The week before the main school holidays so sail was still dominant and “tupperware” boats were still few. Original for sale at Broad Skies Gallery Ludham Bridge, Norfolk
