Spring has Sprung!

The Master’s Golf at Augusta in Georgia

At last , The Masters Golf Championship  returns at it’s normal time of the year!

The 12th Green, Ray’s Creek and The Hogan bridge at Augusta Watercolour sketch 20 inches by 9.

 

Whilst it was good to watch the Masters last November  it is so much better in April with the course looking so beautiful, the Azaleas in bloom and the greens once again  playing very fast to make the golf even more interesting.

It has become a habit for me to post some of my Augusta watercolours whilst the Tournament is progressing  but this year I have just painted a new one.

The view is from behind the 12th Green looking toward Ray’s Creek and The Hogan bridge. The 11th fairway is in the background.

Some patrons are back watching again, lucky them!

So here a few from the past and the new one above for you to enjoy as we all watch the drama unfold over the next few days.

The 12th green and two bridges. Sketch 9 by 7 inches

 

I do hope you get to see some of the golf and the marvellous scenery. Maybe one day I will get there to see it at first hand!

In the meant time, stay safe and well, and I hope we can all look forward to better days and travel once again.

A new idea- Crazy or exciting?

Hi Everybody

Last week I posted about the beautiful Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland.

It started me thinking that a series of the same panorama for each season might be fun to paint and then I wondered, how about just doing one watercolour with all four seasons in the one painting!

Crazy or Exciting?

Well I decided to have a go today and here is the result, hot as they say , off the press!

It starts from left to right with summer first so that I could include some yachts sailing below a cobalt blue sky. Then comes Autumn with a softer ultramarine and cerulean blue cloudy sky before winter with dark skies and rain and snow landing on the Mourne’s highest peak, Slieve Donard and below it a colder sea foaming up on to the beautiful sandy beach. Lastly we are back to spring with big clouds in a cobalt sky.

I know it’s a bit weird but it was a lot of fine to try to paint and maybe you will like it.

I would love to get your comments.

I have popped it on to Artfinder in case someone really likes it!

I am now thinking of other scenes that might work with this idea so who knows you may see some more.

With our second jab due quite soon and half of the UK now vaccinated seeing friends and family and even some travel is becoming a reality, thank goodness.

It is a fantastic UK vaccine achievement which we all are very proud of and congratulate those who have made it happen – well done!

Stay well and safe
