Autumn colours have arrived! Here are a couple of paintings I did two weeks ago at my favourite painting spot in Bath - Sydney Gardens. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday and I was planning on painting the bridge and the water, but when I arrived what caught my eye was the sun hitting the Bath stone on the beautiful building in the park so I gave it a try:
|Sydney Gardens House - October afternoon 10"x12" oil on board|
After finishing that painting, I realised I had to go soon as I had to meet people, but I was frustrated I didn't get a chance to paint the bridge as planned, so I decided to do a very quick study of the bridge before heading home. I did this in 20 minutes - which explains why it looks quite abstract:
|Sydney Gardens' bridge - October late afternoon 10"x8" oil on board|
|The painting after the 20 minutes session|
I just couldn't resist the appeal of the sunny reflections on the water and light yellow/greens showing behind the bridge...
A blogger asked me last time to show how I travel on my bike with my painting kit, so here it is:
As you might notice this is an electric bike. I know people sometimes think these are for grandmas, but let me tell you this is simply my favourite thing in the world! Bath is very hilly, and I don't own a car, so basically this is my car and I can load my kit and go high on the hills and not worry about parking. I use it too to pick up frames from the shop and drop paintings at shows. You'd be surprised how much you can load on these!
