Here's a change from the usual dish of landscapes and seascapes that I serve you! Another still life, and this time in watercolours and gouache.
Between 2008 and 2010 I used to have a tiny stone cottage for a studio, called Toad Hall. Placed on the village green in a pretty village the studio openings were great fun. We hung bunting over the doorway and filled the kitchen with the aroma of coffee and plates of cakes.
Anyway while I was working in that small space I painted lots and lots of still life's and cakes, usually in acrylics. That was before the plein air bug had completely overtaken me. It was my 'afternoon tea' phase!
