Well done Danny Willett, Master’s Champion!

Augusta The 12th Hole

                                   The 12th Hole at Augusta National Golf Course

Hi Everybody

Some time ago I posted about “Places that I would like to visit”. The first one was of Lake Bled, Bellagio and New Zealand and my thanks to those who enjoyed seeing the paintings and the post.

This is the second in this occasional series of watercolours of places that I do hope to visit one day.

This post is about The Master Golf Championship at Augusta in Georgia in the USA, and the far North West of Scotland.

Being a keen golfers for many years I have watched the Masters Golf each year and that yearning to visit returns each year. It isn’t just for the golf ,the course looks both amazing and very beautiful at this time of year with flowers and Azaleas in full bloom.

From a photo, taken of the TV screen, I  painted the watercolour above, a few years ago, which I hope you will like.

Maybe one day I will visit but until then just watching and painting has to be enough!

By next Sunday we will know who is this year’s Winner and Augusta National will disappear from our screens for another year but the memory of the course will remain. Good luck to all the golfers who are playing this magnificent course.

The second pair of paintings were gifts to some friends who love to spend time in the far North West of Scotland, near Durness and Cape Wrath. Painted from photos they try to capture the beautiful coastline at Balnakiel Bay and Sandwood Bay. The coastline of Britain is spectacular and these two parts of Scotland are more places that I would like one day to get to.

I’ll just add them to my bucket list!

Happy painting, Travelling and Golfing!
