The MOPS were invited to Chiddingstone Castle… and I had a go at these two oil paintings, enjoy.
I sketched the Big Ben from St. Thomas hospital long time ago while enjoying myself there… sort of.. This time I just wanted to try to paint a version of Westminster bridge and the Big Ben while crossing on a rainy evening… So ‘Night Bus Special’ was painted. Don’t know about but you I prefer to see it in a glorious sunshine.. I am just going to find someone to switch the lights on..
Tower of David in Pink… I saw that some paint left in the tray after I painted the flowers… so I could not resist it and I pushed a paper in to see what it would look like… The result was that I had a paper with light wash of yellow and pink… Was not sure what will go on top but recently I looked at few pictures from Jerusalem.. One was the Tower of David… so I had to try to paint it on this yellow and pink paper.. look strange as if the tower got some disease…
I love Maurice Sapiro work very much and I must had some telepathy when I look outside my window just as he did…. Check his blog and work.
I have recently joined the ‘Tunbridge Wells Outdoor Art Club’ for landscape painting. Today we had our first delayed outing from last week to the ‘Millenium View’ near Matfield. I have met a superb two great experienced painters who also are very nice people. We enjoyed a super warm day painting with little picnic on site. If you live in our area and want to join us on one of our future outing, please drop me a line.
