Today’s painting started off as a doodle, some do. This one I called ‘Fog of War’.
Just along the coast, Tintagel Castle, legendary birthplace of King Arthur. The castle is built on a rugged, windswept ‘almost’ island on the North Cornwall shore. It is a wonderful place to visit for the day if you love to scramble down hillsides and clamber up stone steps and can imagine being there 1500 years ago. It has it’s own beach with a waterfall and a huge cave (Merlins Cave) that floods at high tide. It is also really good to paint, as I have, several times.
This is a little line and wash landscape using watercolour and ink. I find line and wash enjoyable as the picture comes together quickly, where as usually each piece will take days, the hardest part is to resist the inclination to put in to much detail.
Today’s painting is a little doodle of a dancer, a quick splash of colour with ink highlights.
This one is an illustration for a short story in a book by Colin Beazley. A clockwork heart.
This is time It is a watercolour and ink painting of bulrushes.
Today, for a change, it is the base drawing for one of my book jacket designs, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, This is before the colour is added.
‘ Hoot’ This is in watercolour and ink, it started as a doodle, can you see the owl?
‘Home to Roost’, another of the miniatures, this time in watercolour and ink.
More Of Golitha, this time in watercolour and ink.
