Back in Kent ,Lockdown easing and able to travel around!

Hi Everybody

After our whirlwind virtual visits to a load of places around the world here we are back in Kent and enjoying truly wonderful weather and some easing of lockdown.

We are back to golf and can travel about, but staying apart and being careful too!

So this past week I have been painting watercolours of Kent and one of Pinmill too.

It is nice to be painting locally again and enjoying our own lovely scenery and towns.

As readers will know I am very keen on Thames Barges and so here are four watercolours with Barges as their theme. Two of these are at Faversham and the third is near Oare in Kent.

Another favourite place to go and paint is of course Pin Mill in Suffolk where the barges and boats near to the Butt and Oyster Pub are a key part of the scene.

At this time of year, even a little earlier, if possible,  a day at Scotney Castle in Kent with its wonderfull old ruined castle and stunning Azaleas and Rhododendrons is always enjoyable. We didn’t make it there this year so the watercolour is a reminder to us to visit there again when we can.

And lastly for now, two very quick sketches of our home town of West Malling. It will be nice to see the shops, cafes,pubs and restaurants reopen soon!

Enjoy any travel you can do!
