Well oiled and decidedly smelly

Well oiled and decidedly smelly

Each media has its own merits, and if you were to ask me which I preferred the most, I would honestly struggle to answer since I love the character of them all – watercolours for their spontaneous reaction to water can create some magical effects, pastel is instant colour in a bar of pure pigment […]

Kent rolling on a wave of wonkiness

Kent rolling on a wave of wonkiness

With all the excitement of the art classes starting this week I haven’t been able to talk about my recent sojourn in the delightful county of Kent. Some English counties I know very well – the East Midland ones where I have lived most of my life  – Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. And Devon […]

A step to the other side

A step to the other side

I’ve been to loads of workshops over the last twelve years or so, learning new skills, tips, and ways of tackling painting pictures on all subjects, from landscapes to still-life, figure drawing to animals, in all medias from watercolours through pastels, oils, acrylics, inks, pencil and mixed media. I love them as they open my […]

What the Dickens

I’ve just returned from a short break in the delightfully pretty county of Kent, the land of wonky roofs, red tiled cottages, rolling hills, white cliffs and shingly beaches. And Dickens. More about that one later…..   And best of all I’ve got a wonderful new commission to do….which I know you’re going to be interested […]

Tree of dreams salted but not shaken

Tree of dreams salted but not shaken

I love the curve of a twisted tree far more than a straight trunked tree and have been achingly wanting to paint a twisted tree for some months now since I had seen a particular tree that was powerfully inspiring me. But the art that I want to do sometimes has to wait if a […]

Does Twitter allow that one?

There I was,  sitting minding my own business, on the computer, quietly typing away, when a message came up in my email box……… You’ve been mentioned on Twitter….. Oh yeh, I thought I glanced at it idly, then shot into full attentive mode as I did a double-take!!! I’ve had my cunt painted, by the […]

Ten minutes of your time

Ten minutes of your time

I bumped into the niece of my old neighbour this week, much to my delight. I like her very much, she’s fun and lively, and a delight to be around, with a keen brain and great organisational skills. Which is probably why she organises my favourite exhibition of the year at Ticknall Village Hall in […]
