June and July 2012

Fairhead on the Antrim Coast

The summer has seen us take  short trips to France, and Northern Ireland. There have been a few opportunities to paint quickly and also to paint a couple of watercolours from photos of Florence, as my son and his wife had just visited there and it is always nice to remember times that we spent there.

At least in France we had some sun, a rare thing it seems in the UK this year!   Maybe if the weather improves we will be able to get outside to paint, if not its back to the photos!

The North Antrim coast is one of the most spectacular in the world, and we have been lucky this year to have been to three of the most famous coastlines in the world;  the West coast of California, the Esterel coast in  Provence and the Antrim coast in Northern Ireland
