Today I doodled after my morning litter pick. Walking by yourself gives you chance to think and ponder, and this was in my head. ‘Shelter’, Pitt pen on cartridge paper #sketch #sketchbook #doodle #dailysketch #dailydoodle #cambscreativetreasures #tree #drawing #pen #sketching

A very rare still life....preparing for Monday’s watercolour class....a challenge for us all lol! #watercolor #cambscreativetreasures #watercolorpainting #watercolour #stilllife #stilllifepainting

Two small 10”x8” acrylic sunset paintings fresh off the easel this afternoon (I got a bit bored of the large watercolour- just needed some bold colour to end the week....don’t hate me for it....) available to buy unframed direct from the studio @jacksons_art extra fine linen panel, @goldenpaints & @liquitexofficial paints #cambscreativetreasures #acrylicpainting #sunset #sunsetpainting #contemporaryart #modernart #paletteknifepainting #paletteknife #liquitex #jacksonsart #thefens #fens #eastanglianartists #eastanglianskies

Slowly slowly wins the race right? Continuing with the Round Church painting this morning, after doing the books first thing (oh how I dislike paperwork...) #wip #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolour #watercolourpainting #cambscreativetreasures #cambridge #roundchurch #aquarelle #painting #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram

WIP watercolour painting of the Round Church Cambridge is coming along nicely; plenty of layers in that tree! #watercolor #cambscreativetreasures #watercolourpainting #watercolor_daily #aquarelle #watercolorpainting #cambridge #painting #dailyart #wip #artistsoninstagram

So....I’m trying, experimenting, texture, colour, simple forms, palette knife, brush.....I’m not sure if it’s finished because I like detail yet this is about as minimally as I’ve ever been. Thoughts please! . . . #abstractart #abstractpainting #contemporaryart #modernart #cambscreativetreasures #abstractlandscape #thefens #fens #eastanglianskies #acrylicpainting #acrylics #painting

#wipwednesday After the frustration of putting a hole through the paper yesterday (😤) this morning I’m making much better progress! Drawn out and first layer of washes in place on this painting of the Round Church, Cambridge. This will be used for prints and cards for the visitor centre. A2 size, @daler_rowney Langton cold pressed paper @jacksons_art watercolours @proartebrushes Prolene+ brushes #watercolor #watercolour #watercolorpainting #watercolourpainting #artistsoninstagram #aquarelle #roundchurch #cambridge #heritage #workinprogress #studiolife #watercolor_daily #cambscreativetreasures

When you’ve spent 2 hours getting the drawing prepared and have something fall off the shelf above and put a hole straight through the paper.......let’s start again then....😔 #art #artist #watercolorpainting #studiolife #drawing #artistmistakes #artistlife

Always nice to see an old painting hanging in someone’s home. This home has two of my paintings, and the house two doors down from this has five of my paintings, and three doors down recently became a new collector....which just amazes me that so many local people enjoy having my work on their walls. Thinking about priorities this year I need to be focussed on a few important things: 1. Art workshops & classes 2. Cambridge Open Studios in July 3. Art holidays - my Italy trip is nearly 50% full!! 4. A new set of wildlife drawings 5. A new set of acrylic landscapes and finally 6. 12 new paintings for my 2020 calendar... That should keep me busy! Efficiency is the name of the game for 2019 and keeping on track with what’s needed to be done. #artistlife #artstudio #arttutor #cambscreativetreasures #artist #2019 #acrylicartist

As I drove back home this morning a sparrowhawk shot across the front of the car onto the village playing field, flying straight into a flock of small birds, catching one of them. It stamped its feet to finish it off, then mantled over before taking it off into the woods. As I got home I saw a different bird of prey being chased across the sky. Grabbing Jack’s camera I went and stood in one of the fields at the back of the farm for half an hour, watching the red kite being ‘escorted’ away from the rookery by its inhabitants. At the same time a Kestrel thought it would take advantage of the distraction and sneak onto the scene, but it too was chased away. Two buzzards, coming from across the other side of the field quickly soared past on the thermal as the sun shone brightly. Racing across the fields a few hares and rabbits took a risk as so many birds of prey were overhead, and to finish off the wildlife spotting a heron flew over and landed on the adjacent field, and I startled a great spotted woodpecker out of a tree as I walked back. Not a bad half hour! Amazing what you can see when you stop for a bit and look....#lovenature #nature #birdspotting #thefens #fens #wildlife #rspb #countryfile #countryside #birdsofprey #mammals #inspiredbynature #fields #farming

It’s always a fun morning painting with this group, though it really is a challenge demonstrating watercolours on a vertical board! Trying to control the colour, especially wet-in-wet, takes some doing lol. Anyway, the demo painting turned out ok and everyone enjoyed themselves. Next time: a still life. Help. #cambscreativetreasures #arttutor #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolour #watercolours #watercolourpainting #landscapepainting #artclass

I never fail to be inspired by the fens around us. We took a very quick trip out to Burwell Fen late this afternoon @wickenfennt and saw a couple of short eared owls flying over the Fen, and just as we were leaving, the sun broke through the clouds as it was setting. What’s your inspiration location? #fens #thefens #wickenfen #countryside #countryfile #inspiration #landscapes #eastanglia #inspiredbynature #nature #ntchallenge

A couple of wintery watercolours to kickstart 2019; getting ready for the first watercolour class of the year and couldn’t decide which one to teach so I’ve painted both and will let the class decide which one they’d like to do lol! Both of these are painted on @st_cuthberts_mill Saunders Waterford cold pressed paper with @jacksons_art watercolours.

New Year’s Day, Wells-next-the-Sea, a landscape full of inspiration #northnorfolk #norfolk #coast #inspiration #sky #sun #clouds #walking #dayout #wellsnextthesea #beach

A Christmas commission I can now reveal as it’s been received by its new owner! This is Murphy, @fabercastelluk polychromos coloured pencils on Bristol board, A3 size. This is the biggest drawing to date, and was composed from several photos supplied by the client. Hope you like it! #cambscreativetreasures #christmas #coloredpencil #colouredpencil #drawing #fabercastell #dogportrait #petportrait #drawings #dogs #labrador #animaldrawing #artcommission #commissionart

Believe it or not this is tidy...... This space has served me well this year so I showed it some love this morning and actually cleaned it. So - I’ve totally nicked this idea from @kategreenart blog post but here’s my 2018 review in numbers: 22 workshops and classes 75+ paintings & drawings created 8 commissions completed 22 paintings and drawings sold 2 weeks of Cambridge Open Studios 4 art events/fairs attended 13 workshops & classes booked for 2019 2 art holidays to lead in 2019 It has been the busiest year ever for me and I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received from everyone here and all those I’ve taught, sold to and met this year. Have a blessed, peaceful and relaxing Christmas and New Year. See you on the other side...... #cambscreativetreasures #christmas #tistheseasontobejolly #timeoff

Another watercolour experiment with @jacksons_art paints and @moleskine A4 watercolour sketchbook, 18cm sq image size #cambscreativetreasures #eastanglianskies #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolour #painting #abstractart #abstractpainting #sunset #clouds #contemporaryart #abstractexpressionism

More paint on my hands than on the page.....experiment that probably shouldn’t be shown but ya’know, social media reality and all that... * * * #abstractart #cambscreativetreasures #eastanglianskies #thefens #sky #watercolour #watercolor #watercolors #aquarelle #clouds #sunset #abstractpainting #abstractexpressionism
