Back in Lockdown! Back to the easel!

Alas as the COVID infection rate has risen in the UK we are, in England, back in a four week lockdown.

At  least the sun is shining and so going out for a walk is pleasant, although alas we can’t play any golf.

so this week I have been busy painting a few new watercolours

During October I was lucky enough to have some paintings in Galleries in Tonbridge, the Artspring Galley, and in the Creek Creative  Gallery in Faversham. They both were featuring artwork created during Lockdown and being involved was very interesting. My thanks to them for letting me be a part of their exhibitions.

I had lots to chose from to supply to them as I had painted over 60 watercolours during that first Lockdown.

So here are  this weeks paintings some of which will be going to a Gallery hopefully in December.

Firstly a watercolour of White Rocks Bay near Portrush in Northern Ireland, on the beautiful Antrim Coast.

I had previously painted this bay as part of a painting and post of the Royal Portrush Golf Course but this watercolour is from just a bit further along the coast at the Bay.

White Rocks Bay on the Antrim Coast. 14 inches by 10

These next three paintings may go to a Gallery in time for Christmas and are quite small compared to my usual watercolours.

They are all A4 size in their white mounts which I have included here.

They were fine and relaxing to paint and so I think I will do a lot more this size.

Ihope you like them

So as Lockdown has started again I guess I will be back painting some more watercolours and sending out a new Post

Take  care, stay safe and chill out!

All the Best

  2. Hi Brian Always thrilled to see your paintings and glad you are keeping your spirits up.  I love the one at white rocks on the coast.You said it is smaller than you usually paint.  How much do these cost then if they are smaller? Still admiring but still on a budget.Take care and stay safe!! Victoria
