Panoramic landscapes of Lyme Regis

In recent weeks I have been thinking how I could get my designs onto British Fine bone China mugs and it has been a struggle but I am still working on this and will soon be off to Stoke on Trent to visit the factory in order to understand the process.

It turns out my designs have too many colours in them which is expensive! I just have to work out how to reduce the colours which is no easy feat, believe me.

So I am left with 3 rather fetching long paintings of the seafront at Lyme Regis which are going to be framed in the coming weeks and will soon be for sale….

New work

So its March already and I’m enjoying the bright yellows that are appearing every day. It wont be long until we get that rush of fresh lime green that comes with spring growth. Already some of my paintings have been reflecting this such as this piece…

This is the view from the car park at Felicity’s Farm Shop in Morecombelake.

I meet my friends there occasionally and we go Nordic Walking around the Golden Cap Estate but I always have to take a quick picture of this scene! I have added some sailing dinghys to add some sense of distance but its one hell of a view!

You can see why this inspires me to paint!

Quite a hot weekend...

Phew what a scorcher, as they say..

I had a very successful start to DAW selling 5 paintings on the first weekend which is fantastic. we managed to sell some plants and cakes and raised some money for Parkinsons Uk too.

My largest painting of the show has gone to live in Australia!
