On Whitbarrow
    I'm doing a lot of these small sketches on my tablet recently. It's a quick way to work on ideas for larger paintings.

Whitbarrow looking North
Oil on board, 24"x30"
Finished, (for now)
Morecambe Bay from
 Arnside Knott, Evening.
Oil on canvas 40cmx40cm
If you linger on Arneside Knott until the sun sets you might be rewarded with a spectacular view over the bay.
This one was painted partly from memory and partly from previous plein air paintings and photos. I used a painting that hadn't worked as the background and painted this very quickly. 
Winter Beech Tree,
Oil on board 24"x20"
Indoors I enjoy working with bright high chroma colours.

I'm still here and working on some larger paintings indoors at the moment. I'll post some more later.

Brimham Rocks

Went to Brimham rocks in Yorkshire yesterday. An amazing gritstone outcrop with hundreds of huge worn rocks. Incredible potential for painting and photography. I shall post photos of my paintings when I get them done.
