A Drift of Cosmos...

There won't be many exhibitions I put up which don't display at least one watercolour of flowers. The Cosmos were growing in the garden last year and will provide another stunning show again this time.

Trawlers in Newlyn

I love the working fishing harbours in Cornwall, the sights, the sounds the smells and the general industry of the place, I tried to show this in the painting below rather than the pretty fishing harbour image one often sees in Cornish paintings, it's one of my favourite paintings in this show:

Exhibition update

The new exhibition began on Saturday with plenty of visitors and sales, I'm always unsure whether the good weather is a benefit or not.  But I'm not complaining.  The new work and change of subject matter is going down well I'm pleased to say and I'm finding new things to paint at the farm where I have my studio, like this wall of old rusty tools and cobwebs!

Pretty little boats

I painted these two little boats from a photo from last Summer's trip to Cornwall, as you can tell there was plenty of bright sunshine! I'm very busy organising for the upcoming expo at Swalcliffe Village hall which opens at 10 am this Saturday and runs until the 30th. I'm not sure there is enough wall space this year!
You can see more paintings here

New website...

After several months I can now launch my new website; http://nigelfletcher.co.uk/, it combines the 'Cotswold Sketchbook' mini paintings which started as a 'painting a day' back in May 2009 along with larger watercolours, oils and information about exhibitions and workshops. I'll be putting up the latest exhibition this time next week and will feature most of whats on the site now...hope you like it.

Whichford Pottery

Had a lovely day's painting at Whichford Pottery on Saturday, plenty of visitors and good to see so many friends.  I only managed three paintings - was aiming for 6, but enjoyed chatting to so many people and eating too much cake!

A quick oil sketch looking across the river Blythe in Southwold - soft greys and cool colours from a photo taken on a cold winter's day. What little light there was bouncing over the fast moving water.
