Lovely garden rose today. I have returned from a week-end course in a residential college not far from here. My car has been parked under the glorious rose bush I couldn't resist the temptation to snatch one of the flowers and here it is in watercolour.

Today another sea view. Sunset which I am rather proud of. I had a great fun painting this picture and I hope it shows.

I am fascinated by the sea, its eternal movement, its unceasing murmur. The generations of people come and go and the sea washes our footsteps away.

Thames from the Richmond Bridge

Richmond bridge is in the heart of Richmond-upon-Thames and offers some exceptional views on Thames in both directions. This view is of the floating restaurant. It is fiddly to paint but I like the outcome so I think it was worth sweating over it.

Bournemouth Coast

Today's piece is another of my recent Bournemouth impressions. My daughter's fascination with the sea always gives me a nice foreground. It was nearly dusk then with those lovely blue shadows everywhere. I hope I managed to covey some of that evening's beauty here.

Hurst Castle

This morning I have finished a Hurst Castle watercolour. We went there with my daughter during her Easter Break and I thought the views were breathtaking. There will be more images of the British southern coast to follow.
