more painting

All through the autumn and winter months I was busy lime plastering, rendering and pointing. but did find time for some of painting.

I had been lucky enough to get into the RNLI art exhibition in Instow and even luckier to sell two paintings:

So very pleased to have helped raise a bit of money for the RNLI who do so much good work.

I found this excellent blog site about earth pigments

which is further inspiration for me to continue painting.

this is my latest – a portrait of the rock and tunnel at Hartland Quay. I decided early on in the painting to separate it from the landscape, isolated from the background and foreground it is transformed from a landscape painting to an abstract painting of shape and colour tones – all painted with earth pigments from the coast of North Devon.

40″ x 32″ on canvas.
