We have just returned from a week in Devon where we stayed in a little cabin or "villa" in Saunton Sands which is mostly a nature reserve made up of sand dunes with a cluster of cabins at one end and a small selection of beach facilities. Literally miles of unspoilt beach due to the nature reserve. I did a few watercolours and drawings . These two are maybe the best. I did one from memory of a curious phenomena of the light when the sun was shining through clouds while we were messing around in the surf. It looks a bit too much like a sunset and so I will have to look at it for awhile to see whether it should go up here. We had a fabulous time though. Lots of sun and surf.

Well I have been doing this for just over a week now and I think the paintings and drawings reproduce really well electronically. Somehow the system seems to retain the luminosity of the watercolours-probably because they appear lit frombelow-the idea behind watercolours of course is that the transparent colours are also lit from below by the light shining on the paper. The oils seem to retain their colours really well too.
Anyway thanks for all the comments so far. I hope I will be able to load up more fresh work soon. Keep dropping by.
