The fishing boat "Arkane" at Whitby harbour at the mouth of the River Esk last weekend - pretty little boaty!
Spent last weekend in Whitby. Walked east along the Cleveland Way cliff path to the Whitby Fog Signal building Had some time on my own when I returned so I sketched the Abbey from alongside at the same altitude. I usually draw/paint it from near sea level showing it overlooking the harbour above the picturesque jumble of cottages tumbling down the hillside.
Went to the "Goth Weekend" at Whitby 5 days ago. Saw more "Steampunks" than Goths - had to Google that! They were so well dressed that the rest of us looked pretty scruffy. Sketched my memory of them on our last evening there - see top row on the attached image - the bottom row starts with our walk along the beach to Sandsend followed by sketches of Whitby harbour. The gale-force northerly wind provided proper crashing waves all the way from Norway!
Here is the list of my paintings for the "Ten Artists Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall tomorrow and Sunday. The weather forecast is good for tomorrow and not bad on Sunday - come and see us, the other 9 Artists are much better than me.
Ready! My 10 paintings for the "Ten Artists Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall this coming weekend. Just have to get together all the prints and cards I've produced.... then relax (until Saturday)
This is my painting of a view to the north east from my studio/workroom rooflight in Ringinglow Village with a smidgen of artistic license - a doctored version again to protect the innocent! The pristine version of this painting will be at the "10 Artists Exhibition" (and 10 paintings by each artist) at Baslow Village Hall on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October. This is my 10th and final painting for the Exhibition. It's Mayfield Valley in south west of our great city of Sheffield. The building in the centre of the painting covered with red Virginia creeper is Fulwood Hall.
Another for the Exhibition at Baslow on 22nd & 23rd October. This one's from my Sheffield Canal Basin Series - it's inspired by the Terminal Warehouse and colourful canal boats ie. it's completely made up!
This is my painting of a corner of Whitby Harbour on the left bank of the Esk with a lot of artistic license - a doctored version again to protect the innocent! The pristine version will be at the "10 Artists & 10 Paintings Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October.
A panorama from above Sheffield Railway Station. This version has been doctored to protect the innocent again! The pristine version will be at the "10 Artists & 10 Paintings Exhibition" at Baslow on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October
I've always had in my mind to do a proper full width Panorama of the right bank of the River Esk at Whitby Harbour in pen & watercolour. Here it is (another adulterated version) - 600mm wide and the pristine version will be at the "10 Artists & 10 Paintings Exhibition" at Baslow on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October.
Walking back along the sands from Sandsend to Whitby after my usual crab sandwich feast, spotted 2 gulls appearing to spectate an off-shore yacht race.
Heeley Art Club tonight - the task "working in the style of your chosen artist". Guess mine!
3 post cards from Whitby - no words just sketches!
My impression of Barker's Pool Sheffield. It's for our (Heeley Art Club) Exhibition at Gallery 35, Chapel Walk, Sheffield 11th-16th August - come along! While I was finishing this one our younger daughter Sian was producing our next generation - our next prince "Rory". It wasn't easy but both are well! Congratulations to her and Andrew. Our Rory was born in time for the kick off of the new football (soccer in the USA) season at 2.11pm. Love you all 3. x
Sheffield on the hill - looking up Pond Hill..... stage 3 finished! Can't decide whether or not to add it to my display in the "10 artists and 10 paintings" at Baslow on 24 & 25 October. In the meantime I must do some house maintenance, painting and decorating!
Next!! Sheffield on the hill - looking up Pond Hill..... stage 1, the pen drawing.
Whitby after the Landslide. Finished at last! Do you think I've put too many seagulls on the mudflats - they're usually all around the chip shop.
Didn't get anything done today (grandchild minding) but just the foreground and shadows to paint!
2 sketches from our outdoor meeting last Tuesday evening with Heeley Art Club at Beauchief Gardens, Sheffield upstream from Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet which you can see on the upper sketch across the mill-pond.
