The beautiful city of Bath

I'm very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in England (if not in the world!) which is Bath in Somerset. The graceful architecture, the honey-coloured stone of the buildings, the beautiful River Avon and the stunning hills and panoramic views make this city a perfect and inspiring place to paint. Obviously I'm not the first one to notice it since Bath has an history of great painters such as Walter Sickert, JMW Turner, and more recently the truly talented Peter Brown or Adebanji Alade.
I have been painting views and cityscapes of Bath for a few years now and still feel there is so much more to explore! 
Here is a selection of some of my latest Bath paintings...

  3. J'adore la première, Union Street ! Magnifique !!

  4. Merci Hélène! C'est une de mes préférées aussi! Elle m'a pris beaucoup de temps mais finalement je suis contente du résultat. Une charmante dame de Namur me l'a acheté il y a quelques mois.
