|Crabbing at Brancaster Staithe|
Oils 18" x 22"
The weather has been just gorgeous here in the last few days, hope it has been for you too. Although there's a temptation to be relaxed and go with the flow in this lovely sunshine I've been busy as ever, getting ready for Patchings Festival, ordering frames and materials, and painting both outdoors and in the studio. I've also been arranging to have a 2015 calendar made, which is rather exciting as I've never had my own calendar before. And I've designed a second volume of my little book 'Paintings of light and colour'! This contains a selection of my favourite paintings from 2013 and the start of this year, alongside some inspiring quotes and comments about the paintings. I will be bringing the new book and calendar to Patchings festival, as well as some new card designs and new paintings such as this one!

This painting will be one of those featured in the new A3 calendar and as a new greetings card.
Several of you wrote to tell me you liked it already after seeing it in my last blog post, but I had further plans for it. You may have noticed that I'm really trying to put more figures in my landscape and seascape paintings, especially to paint the figure outside from life wherever possible. It's really what I've always wanted to paint and little by little I'm moving towards the possibility of painting the types of paintings I dream about painting. Hope that makes sense!
