Bath View from the putting Green, below Sion Hill

Later November view from the putting Green, below Sion Hill. Done in two quick sessions. Each time, soon after I sat down it began to rain, and a windy squall hit on the second sitting although both days had been 'Beautifully Sunny'  till I started work there. (I think I can control the weather now. I just paint .... and it rains).
This was finished as the light faded so I put a bit of yellow glow in some windows as the lights were beginning to come on.
It's a small commission for a friend who needs it for a present. The view had caught my eye in the summer when the light in the mornings reflected in bright patches off some of the distant roofs  - very lovely and most 'Evocative of Bath'. But I only managed to get there in the afternoons and although there was a short splash of sunlight at the first sitting which cast interesting shadows and spot-lit the chimney tops etc., generally it was a pretty dull light. However I quite like this result with an Evening feel.

My painting of Sherbourne Street, Bourton -on-the-water (Looking south towards the centre). Oil on Panel 10" x 14". 

Members of  the British Pochade Society, congregating on street corner of Rectory Lane, deciding where to set up for painting the town.  It was Easter Sunday so not many of us turned up but the sun shone and we set to work. Unfortunately I didn't  get any more suitable photos of people in action.

a'Beckett's Vinyard

'unfinished' sketches - a'Becketts Vinyard 
Not many villages  in the UK can boast of a local vinyard. This one it about 10 years old, and produces some fine wines.

A warm evening at last

Monday, February 22, 2010

ERLESTOKE Sun catching the field, light snow on the slope in the distance. For once it was a cloudless day and I tried to capture the light in the middle ground, with the far hill casting it's shadow on the snowy slopes. Unfortunately I was standing in shade to paint this, got very chilly - temp about -2deg!
