Foel Goch and Llyn Ogwen under snow

 

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 28cm

 

£475 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

This must be my favourite spot in N Wales, and to see  it  under snow with the lake so calm as to mirror the mountains – does it get any better than this ? I was fascinated by the way that the stillness of the water turned the picture almost into an abstract study, which way is up ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evening Sky

 

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 28 cm

Many happy evening walks along the coast from Penmaenmawr to Llanfairfechan have never shown the same set of colours twice, and the light paths cast on the water – what a delight

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lake Como

   

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 28cm

 

£600 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

We were visiting this area of Northern Italy when we got caught by Iceland's volcanic ash cloud. We were amongst the lucky ones as we had a fantastic time prolonging our holiday in this amazing area while we waited to get home. The 'usual' view of Lake Como is with ultramarine blue waters and brilliant sun on the geraniums - I prefer (from a painting point of view) scenes with atmosphere such as this low cloud introduces because I think it makes the mountains look larger and more powerful. The still  dove grey water allowed for lovely reflections too.

 

 

 

 

Hawthorn

 

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 27 cm

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

This mountain hawthorn has been blasted by the elements or lightning or something and is clinging on to its life amongst the rocks with a tiny portion of its original trunk and yet it is managing to produce all this growth. I have a thing about painting trees and twigs so this was a real winner for me, and I was also fascinated by the ’fairy head’ shape the ivy had formed.

 

 

 

 

Hidden doorway

 

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 27 cm

 

£645 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

This doorway is on the Glen Estate near Peebles.  We followed a yellow National Open Gardens Scheme sign to Glen Estate and were lucky enough to see the beautiful garden, woodland and amazing ‘gothicy’ house. One of those serendipity days which led to this painting as we wandered across this little hidden doorway into a forgotten stone building, and as usual I wanted to know what these stones had seen and what stories they could tell, and, most importantly what was behind that door…… 

 

 

 

 

Budapest

 

original watercolour

        

painting size 27cm x 40cm

 

£445 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

To celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday we had a family trip to Budapest - what a lovely city. Some of the architecture is fabulously gothic as here by the side of the lake in the city park. Reflections always make me wonder about parallel worlds and the glassy surface of the lake coupled with the buildings was just magical.

Colours of autumn

 

original watercolour

I have been told quite a lot that my work looks like it was done by more than one artist – as I am self-taught I like to challenge myself and am still exploring possibilities with watercolour. I am a long way from mastering abstraction to my satisfaction but I do like varying my palette as I think this picture demonstrates. These impressive trees are in N Wales and I think their joyous colours take the sting out of approaching winter. (As does the prospect of crumpets in front of an open fire !)

 

 

 

 

Returned Safely Home

Another set of sunset colours over the sea, no wonder we stayed here so long……….

 

 

 

Llyn Gwynant in Winter

original watercolour

painting size 40 x 27 cm

 

£445 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

Just on the brink of moving we allowed ourselves a couple of ‘farewell days’ to visit the places we have loved over the 37 years we have lived in North Wales. They did not disappoint. This picture came from one of those days – Llyn Gwynant was like glass with a little magical mist punctuating the mountains.  A little postcard from Wales for me perhaps.

 

 

 

Sunset, Swansea, New South Wales

 

Original watercolour

 

painting size 38 x 29cm

 

£575 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

This beautiful lake is just north of Sydney, Australia and we had the good fortune to visit it whilst catching up with our nomad daughter. The lake was huge, serene and I felt there ought to be a National Geographic photographer lurking somewhere nearby!  And of course the clincher for me was the winter tree................

 

 

 

 

 

 Lisbon

 

original watercolour 

               

painting size 28 x 18 cm

 

£345 plus shipping and insurance

(shipped in a protective mount

 

As we get older we are not missing any opportunity for a celebration and this one to Lisbon was to mark our 39th wedding anniversary .  In January Lisbon was calm and cool. Looking across the inlet was so peaceful it was a perfect spot for a picture for me.

 

 

 

 

Cottages at Penmon Point

        

original watercolour

 

painting size 40 x 27cm

When the children were young a treat (well for Frank and I) was to go to Penmon Point, look at the mountains, search for marine fossils on the beach and eat scones in the cafe. These white houses always glowed as they caught the sun and seemed to be like guardians or lookouts  watching across the Straits. Somehow they looked a little plaintive as well and I think that's why I wanted to paint them.

 

 

 

 

Llyn Tegid, Bala

 

original watercolour

   

painting size 40 x 28cm

(shipped in a protective mount)

 

This little boat is all tucked up for winter and somehow seems to be sheltering by the pier. The sun put on a lovely show on the water for us the day we were there.
