Another sketch on our journey with Riviera Travel in Italy. Amalfi Cathedral from a café in the Piazza Duomo. Had to sample the desserts - delicissimo! What a bus trip along the Amalfi coast followed by the view from the top of the hills at Ravello and back via the plain below Vesuvius. Trip of a lifetime.
Popped into the Leopold Hotel in Sheffield yesterday. Two of my original paintings of the Hotel are now hanging in the main lounge/bar, images of my work are on the drinks & food menu and various items around the Hotel. Thanks to Frederic the manager.
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.
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)
Placa del Mercat - Palma, Mallorca last week. It's a bit Gaudi-ish!
We're back home safe, sound and (a lot) colder! Attached the full range of grandchidrens' postcards sent from Puerto Soller - no words, just drawings again!
3 post cards from Whitby - no words just sketches!
One more London Travel Poster. This drawing is of St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square adjacent to the National Gallery. I'm off soon to help set up our Exhibition at Gallery 35, Chapel Walk in Sheffield City Centre open 11th- 16th August!
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
Heeley Art Club last night the theme was "animals"
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!
I'm well on with this one - "Whitby after the landslide" - it's for the "10 artists and 10 paintings" Exhibition at Baslow on 24 & 25 October this year.
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.
- These are 5 sketches which I completed on a folded/layflat A3 sketchbook the day before we rushed off to Rhosneigr in Anglesey just over a week ago.
