Hay Bales Dordogne

Hay bales dordogne

Dordogne, France,  Watercolour, 15" x 11"

An imaginary scene taking inspiration from the Dordogne countryside and a late summer field.  So straw bales, you can put them where you want to suit the composition.  As long as you observe their format - the texture, a flat bottom because they weigh so heavy and the stubble of the field and where they cut the hay, the bales are lying at right angles to the rows, if you see what I mean.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Contre Jour Yate Rocks, UK

Contre jour yate rocks

My favourite aspect, contre jour and painting against the light.  Yate Rocks again, near me, and a view up the road back into Yate from the river.  This semi lockdown has a nice effect of making me think more about local subjects.  How many great paining opportunities are there within a mile or two of your home, or even your garden (if you are lucky to have one)?

Old Vineyard Monte dei Bianchi

Old Vineyard Monte dei Bianchi

Tuscany, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Old Vineyard at Monte dei Bianchi.  A hot autumn day and the afternoon sun casting its rays across the vine - maybe the grapes have just been harvested.   An old vineyard with some old posts at quirky angles can make for an interesting composition.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
