Thame Plein air Oil

Thame Oil

Another Plein air done in oils.  This was painted in gale force winds again,  my hands frozen to my brush.
Good experience painting in extreme conditions, it will make painting on a nice day seem easy I hope.

Whitstable Plein air

 Whitstable Plein air oils.

Painted on a workshop given by Michael Richardson in Whitstable. 
A wonderful day with a group of lovely people and an amazing workshop from an incredibly talented artist.

Cherwell Boathouse Oil

Cherwell Boathouse Oil

Second attempt at Plein air in oils.  Painted this one in variable weather where I was shone and rained upon in equal measure.
Wonderful time painting this with friends from the Oxford Bury Knowle Art group. 

Garden Plein air oil

 Messy Garden

Painted Plein air.  I can't say how different it is to paint something on the spot rather than in the studio. 
It was quite an experience trying this... and something I loved and am finding more and more addictive as I do more of them.

Red Onion watercolour

Enjoyed painting another onion watercolour.
I am not sure why, but I seem to prefer any paintings I do which have a red colour.
