WM in action & kit

These are a series of images both showing places where I have painted and the variety of kit used, both for plein-air work and potrait-sketches.

Jaffrey, New Hampshire
Jaffrey, New Hampshire

A wonderful visit to Jaffrey, in 2019 after our son Thomas' marriage to Crystal in New York. We stayed with our cousins Tom and Margo Smith and had some great walks. Tom took the photo of an attempt at some water-colour - using very light-weight gear.

A bit of work in the white stuff - photo by Jonathan Shearer. A great time plein-air! But most of the time I kept the gloves on - too cold otherwise!

Our son Thomas and I had a brief break in Egypt and the water-colour sketching opportunities were amazing. It was great trying to draw camels! Thomas couldn't resist taking this photo

Doing some 'portrait-sketching' as part of the Redcastle Art Group exhibition in Cromarty. The rugby shirt is good fun and helps stop it all becoming too serious!

Yes it was COLD! Libby is smiling as a bare-hand sketch takes place because the gloves were too cumbersome! The sacrifices....!

A massive privilege to be doing portrait-sketches at a 'Christmas hand-made craft fair' in 2019 . It was organised by our daughter Sarah who also had a stall as did our grand-daughter - 3 generations together!!

A 40th wedding-anniversary treat for Libby and I of a month in New Zealand in 2015. What an amazing country and what great places for painting!

A once-in-a-lifetime chance in a Masai Village to do portrait-sketches of some wonderful Kenyan people. Here with one of the ladies. Crystal - now married to Thomas - took the photo. Charcoal on pastel-paper and then fixed....and VERY hot!
Ben Eighe Rainbow

Sometimes the kit itself becomes the subject! This was just one of those moments painting Ben Eighe when rain and sun combined producing an amazing rainbow. See the end-result in the 'Snow Images' page.

A professional photographer's take on portrait-sketching at the Bangor Christmas Fair, Northern Ireland. He has caught the vivid busyness of the Fair but kept a simple focus on the drawing.

Here with Nathan after doing his portrait-sketch at Nairn Book and Arts Week. The 'Week' is like a miniature 'Edinburgh Festival' and it has been a privilege to be invited there for the last few years.
