First snow at the pub

An animation from a painting of the Yew Tree, a pub in Alresford, Hampshire, in southwest England which was a very nice find!

Part of my ongoing preparation for the Art + Photo exhibition I will be participating in with Georges Dutil and David Morris, at the Atelier/Galerie Marc Gosselin, in Montreal, 17-26.05. 2018. #Montrealexhibition, #art#photo#TRIAGE#exhibition

Grand Royale – Quiet Space

Grand Royale - Quiet Space
Quiet space in the Grand Royale Hyde Park hotel foyer, with the early morning light coming in to warm the heart.

After the Mews, one of my favourite discoveries in London: the Grand Royale Hotel, at Bayswater, near Hyde Park. I was there a few years back, and loved it! I did many paintings of this place, as every nook and cranny was delightful to me.

London is filled with magical places. One only needs to notice. As usual for me, the small things are the most interesting. This early morning scene brings me back there, enjoying a Caffe Latte and a croissant – I know, typical British fare, right?

On a Wet Afternoon

Rain sometimes makes for interesting effects. And Dusk being my favourite time of day, I indulged myself in Cirencester.

Clovelly – no heels allowed

Get good shoes and you’ll have your cardio done by the end of a treck through Clovelly, a very old fishing village in the Torridge district of Devon, England.

Ducks in a pond

My second painting from Abbotsbury. I just loved the view. This is my first upload since at least a week. I’ve been busy. BUT I had this one done and ready so, before signing off, why not?

Lil’ Red Car

Lyndhurst has this Ferrari dealership. Just wanted to have a go at one of those babies. Now, without lying outright, I can say: have you seen my Ferrari? Don’t have to specify I’m talking about an illustration ;o)

Beach Combing in Waymouth

Lots of overcast skies in the uK, which makes for dramatic views and memories! This is the beachfront in Waymouth.

Down by the River

Nice blue skies, water and a bridge make for a happy traveller.

Abbotsbury Pond

I’m pretty happy with this one. I particularly like the light. Feels like a modern day Romantic British painter did this – Turner, Constable come to mind – but i’m no art expert. Anyway, pretty happy with this one.

Cirencester After the Rain

Wanted to, but did not eat at the Crown. I had quite a bit of road to cover and night was falling. I just enjoyed the sight against the bright, soon to be night sky.
