Our sevenoaks Art Club started a new society called the MOPS which is midweek outdoors painters. We try to meet every fortnight in another location and paint in the fresh air.. This week we met in Ide Hill and it was little more then fresh… It was rainning and blowing gale storm. So each member set in their car and sketch painted. I prepare my painting which later I finished indoors! in Oils for a change, all is painted with a knife which was quite new to me. Enjoy.

Ide Hill Heavy shower clear the last snow


Maaaa sound familiar but not so much when the weather is turning cold. It is a sound more likely in spring. As the snow come down south in England and the days get colder, I thought to paint a winter scene. After watching some of the Christmas cards  painted by Martin Taylor I had a go. I am not sure if it was good enough to be my nominated Christmas scene yet.. I am sure there will be few more later on.  And to make you feel more in season I even switched the snow to fall on my Blog site… So keep warm and I must rush to put the fire on and also put a jumper on.

Maaaa it's Cold

Winter on our door

A while ago it was Autumn and leaves still falling off the trees.. Days are short and it is Winter knocking on our doors. It is damp and bleak, I can even feel the cold in my bones. They probably start displaying the Christmas decoration in the shops and people will soon start singing Christmas carols…

First Winter Slide

The painting above inspired by an exercise I saw in our magazine by Trevor Waugh. Sometime, I have spare moment or two which I pass by trying my hand following those exercises. I know that keeping painting various subjects improve you as an artist. I feel that each part of one painting probably lead you and make your next one.
