I’ve been dabbling with sepia watercolour sketches of late and I’m really enjoying the looseness of the exercise. It’s fun to create simple landscapes from my imagination and paint them in a single colour.
Painting is a hobby for me so if I’m busy at my regular job for long periods of time, watercolour and oil painting get put on hold for a while. Lately I’ve had the chance to sit down and paint again and it’s a simple pleasure that means more to me the older I get. Some of what I’ve been painting lately is now available for purchase online. Feel free to let me know what you think. Here’s the link to my online shop:
There’s a monastery on an island in Lake Orta across from the village of Orta San Guilio. This is the view from that island.
Near Magdalen College in Oxford.
Orta San Giulio is an ancient village in the Italian Lake District and like most of that entire region, doesn’t disappoint as a vacation destination. It’s a place you have to experience on foot – no vehicles allowed.
Café in the historical Old Quebec City. (Not a typically North American city…loads of well-maintained history, and a healthy visual art scene.)
Just for fun. From my sketchbook.
