Mainly a "watercolour artist", my paintings are representational works of the ordinary streets, countryside and coastal areas that surround us daily. My passion is for painting buildings and boats and I love to find that unusual viewpoint of familiar places. To quote a favourite artist of mine, Andrew Pitt -" I like to think of painting as re-creation not recreation".
 I also enjoy drawing very much.

Venice Virtual Paint-out 3

A little Venetian back water, my final one for this challenge, although I could go on painting Venice forever. Have no idea of the name of the canal/street, but just couldn't resist photographing the washing line. See More

Not sure yet, Kevin, where we’re off to this weekend. Might you be in the area? We went to Virginia last Sat. It was beautiful and I’m sure we’ll do it again sometime. You missed a great time at  the Dublin Fest.  And Connemara was its usual very enjoyable with a great crowd numerically and craicwise.  Don’t forget we’re off to Donegal for a few nights 19th August.   Might you join us there?

I like your use of the w/c pencils.  That barge does look interesting and I’m sure, although I really know nothing about it,  looked very foreign in Wexford. 

I think I’ve already sent you the Donegal details but if you can’t find them and are interested let me know. All the best. Sally

Venice Virtual Paint-out 2

Whilst in Venice a couple of years ago, I was fascinated by the various shapes of some of the windows. In a small street to the left of the entrance to La Fenice opera house, I came across this balcony over a shop which I thought  would make a good subject. Thanks to Norah's challenge I have finally gotten around to completing it. …

Venice Virtual Paint-out 1

Spent the last few days looking through my photos of Venice from our wonderful time there a couple of years ago. So much to choose from, so I hope you'll forgive me Norah if I end up doing more than one. Here's one to start, from a photo taken from the ferry as we arrived before rounding the building on the extreme right to enter the Canal Grande. More later.…
