It’s been lovely and springlike this week, which has created some excellent conditions for painting outside.
In fact, it turns out that my last post contained the 10th April, (day 100 of 2014), but as I’d forgotten to upload the image from 31st March, there were only 99 paintings online. That’s all sorted now, and here are a few more daily paintings.
It’s only 3 days since I posted the last lot of paintings, but as I had time today I thought I post these ones.
I’ve been loving the weather this week. Plenty of opportunity to perfect subtle colour variations of sky and sea. Then lightning fast sketches at Beatles Day 15 at the weekend.
I’m still busy with the studio move, so have been a bit slow uploading the images this week.
It’s very nice to have a continuing artist project that I can do even when my studio is temporarily unusable.
It’s amazing how aware of the weather you become when making a painting outside every day.
The iPad paintings continue. It’s been about very rapid paintings this week. Trying to capture ‘Now and Then’ during a 15 minute gig and The Lanes in Brighton and Hastings Pier in the rain.
For today’s painting I thought I’d do some reportage painting. I liked the idea of taking the time to create a painting from life when so many people could just snap a picture on their camera phone. H&M are just fitting a new shop in Priory Meadows Hastings and I thought it would be good to capture the front being fitted. I was amazed to be asked to leave by the security guard as it was private property and I needed special permission to draw there!
