WASH DAY AT MARSH FARM – WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

Yesterday I decided to join a painting club on one of their summer site visits. I had just joined this club, mainly for the exhibition possibilities, and they sent me their summer schedule which contained some places I had not been before in the area. Marsh Farm was one, and as it was a nice day I thought I would get out and give it a go.

Apart from my old wooden stool falling apart from under me as I painted, it was a good day. Above is the group painting the farm, whilst I sat on a bank by the track – one of the few comfortable places left with the demise of my stool.

THE ESCAPE COMMITTEE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1030180(1)a

When out walking the other week I saw this sheep with her lambs waiting for us to pass before they made a bolt for the field in front of them . I arranged them into an overlapping group to accentuate the anticipation and tried to keep the colour range tight. I painted it in a single sitting as it seemed to come together fairly easily and am pretty pleased with the outcome.

A DALES’ FARM – PASTEL PAINTING

P1070180(1)

We were whizzing back across the country from County Durham towards Kendal when I spotted a farm on the  horizon. I remember a walled hill leading up to buildings and trees and the hills behind. When I got home I decided to paint this memory, emphasising the colour shift from grey blue, through blues, greens and yellows to oranges.
