Really had a lot of fun painting this! and works well with this fairly 'loose' treatment I recon. It's from a photo from the road trip around Cornwall last year and I can't wait to go back again next year take less photos and do more painting.

The Autumn colours this year seem more vibrant than usual and thankfully the heavy winds have yet to appear. This was painted at the very end of the day with the light disappearing fast behind me, no time therefore to hang around, I love that pressure!

So back to Garden Cottage now after a couple of weeks staying in a campervan on the farm where I have a studio. I managed to get plenty of work done including a very large commission (more later) and 9 plein air studies around the buildings, a little tractor driving and hay bale stacking occasionally and plenty of fresh air!

Another scorcher yesterday, I'm staying on a small dairy farm and didn't have to travel far to find this shady spot to spend the afternoon!

Really hot here today in Sibford, too hot to stay in the studio, so drove around for a while looking for a suitable subject but with some shade too...and it must be the 6th time I've painted here!

From the wednesday watercolour class, this is a new version of the demo I did on the day and much looser than the original. I originally got hung up with all the foliage and flowers (detail) and lost sight of the bigger shapes...something I'm always preaching!
