Lesson Three

Work from a photograph you have taken yourself.  This is the water tower at Trelissick Gardens, a National Trust property near Truro.

Lesson Two

Look at objects and spaces in between them, proportions and tones.

Simple Line Drawing and Contour

Now that I can't get to art classes and can only get to Art Club when the weather is dry, I find I need some incentive to keep on painting.  So I have enrolled with a "Drawing for Beginners" correspondence course.  This is my submitted homework for Lesson One - Simple Line Drawing and Contour.

I hope you will enjoy following my progress.

Polborrow Mine

I liked the way that the red in the building was echoed in the cliffs.

Bude Canal

It is nearly Exhibition time again - 5th -11th August in Portreath.  This year we have also been offered a new venue - The Heritage Centre, Redruth - from 23rd July for five weeks.  Although there is only room for one painting each in Redruth, I may be lucky and sell something so must have a back-up.  This means I should have at least 15 paintings ready to show for both exhibitions and this one plus the next three are the first four I've prepared.

Storm Brewing

Another inspiration from Cornwall Cam.

A great site if you like photos of Cornwall.

Nearly There

Since I had a knee replacement last November I have not done much painting, recovery has been painfully slow.

I loved the photo that Sally-Ann took on Carn Brea hill and used it to produce this painting.
