Close to our new place a gorgeous Rhododendron is flowering.  I had to have a piece and painted it at home, a quick water colour.  I tried to get the impression of the exuberance of colour of the flowers in the sun.

I saw a window, where a part of it had changing shadows. I played around with some of the lines and forms and added colours.  More playing might follow!

View from Brighton pier

I was standing on New Brighton pier looking out towards Sumner. The sun shone on the sea. The different
bands of colour in the water intrigued me: where the sand shone through the colour changed and on the
beach was lots of white from the waves. I did a pen sketch at the pier and added the wash at home.

View of the hills from my window #1

Outside our window I can see the hills. In the evening when the shadows lengthen I can see these on the hills over the roofs. I’ve tried to capture some of it but will have to have many goes I think.

Magnolia in the sun

I saw a magnolia tree flowering in a patch of sunlight and tried to capture the freeness of the flowers in the light.

A quick interpretation of some daisies.  I tried to make them look as if the sun was shining on them and they were waving in the wind.
