Painted this hut with vista last weekend at Burgie House, near Forres, Morayshire, Scotland. Too cold for outdoors so this acrylic was done from my bedroom. Autumnal copper beech trees at the gate to Burgie Arboretum, looking north through the gap towards the sea. As you paint, more and more reveals itself - a tractor with haybales on the A96, the orange windsock at Kinloss airport, Findhorn Bay, the distant hills of Sutherland and on the second day a walker in a red coat appears.
For several weeks a group of us have been painting on Tuesday afternoons at Leigh Woods, mainly around the Stokeleigh viewpoint which overlooks Brunel's Suspension bridge and Clifton, Bristol.
Starting back with art after my September hiatus, I took the 20 minute walk from Severn Beach train station along the coast path to paint this view at Severn Lodge Farm. It is one of the few remaining old buildings at the former 19th century train and ferry terminal at New Passage. I cut conservation card to get a long board so I could get both house and bridge in. No priming so it has come out rather matt as the medium has sunk into the card. Look back to my June blog to see my view from the opposite ferry landing point at Black Rock, Portskewett in Wales.
