Sailing in Greece

Some of my Sketches

We have been sailing around the Saronic Islands and the Argolic Gulf in Greece. In-between pulling ropes I sometimes manage to squeeze in a few quick sketches to work into paintings when I return.
The Greek islands are so bathed in light and beauty. So nice to be in an international sailing community where we share a harbour with people from France, Italy, Greece, Germany, The Ukraine, Serbia, America and Bangladesh; and doubtless others we haven't met yet.
Looking forward to getting back into the studio while the memories are fresh.

Really enjoyed painting this commission of Rosedale. Commissions are a great opportunity to hone painterly skills. In some ways I really liked the simplicity of the early stages but it had to be taken further and the brief was lots of warm colour.

Fantastic two day painting workshop in Huttons Ambo with students from far away places such as Wales and Australia. Thank you all so much you talented lot. The landscape around Huttons Ambo has been brought to life in a new and unique way.

Someone once sent me a little saying in an anonymous ‘share a special part of a poem with a stranger’ project.
It went something like this...

In the darkest part of the dark night - the light comes.

At the time I tossed it to one side dismissively as somehow not coming up to the mark in the profundity I was seeking.

However, it stayed with me and came to mind again when I made the arduous journey from ‘Helmsley Walled Garden’ to ‘Falling Cups’.
