A few recent watercolours, Summer is here!

Hi Everybody,

With no travel outside of the UK really possible for us yet I have been painting a few watercolours of places that I love or would like be going too.

Firstly a watercolour pen and wash sketch of Polpero in Cornwall, somewhere we have been to, but,  I am  indebted to “The Hungry Travellers Blog” (https://www.thehungrytravellers.blog) for their permission to use the photograph from which this watercolour is based. I like the verticality of the buildings that they captured in the photo.

Polpero in Cornwall. Watercolour sketch 10 inches by 9.

Next two recent commissions of Tuscany and Umbria. I have painted these scenes before but I do love to paint scenes like these again and again! Of course they are always a bit different.

Lucca in Tuscany. Watercolour on Arches paper. 18 inches by 8.

A view of evening in Umbria. Watercolour on Arches paper. 18 inches by 8.

The Lake District of England is very spectacular and so here is recent watercolour of Derwentwater there. 

Derwentwater in The Lake District. Watercolour on Arches 19 by 9 inches

 

A quiet day in Venice. Watercolour 14 inches by 10.

Again and again I love to try to capture Venetian scenes and this one, quite near to the Rialto Bridge is a view that I love with the Church tower adding height to the waterfront view.

Lastly two more views of Engalnd

This first one is  a view across the Suffolk Fens  and the second of a farm and Oast Houses in Kent. I hope you like them.

Across the Fens. Watercolour 16 inches by 12.

Oasts and Farm in kent. Watercolour 14 inches by 10.

Maybe soon some real travel will let me post some “plein air” watercolours.

In the mean time stay safe and well and enjoy the summer if it is that time of year for you.

Best regards to all

Brian
