Thanks for all the comments and likes on the last piece – I made a Flip-a-gram  over on Instagram if you fancy a look head over (link at the side).

I have a thing for rooftops – love the patchwork look to them.

I also really love the process of painting overlapping geometric shapes and breaking them up with the swipe of a paintbrush to depict a tree.

It was hard to find colour in this scene and after I’d painted it quite brightly I decided to give this a chalky white wash.

I can see a pattern repeat crying out to be made from some of these little sections.

Thanks for visiting today x

We are just back from a lovely break in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

This is a place where you can really see the sky (I live in a city and hardly ever see the horizon.)

And the skies here are really worth looking at constantly because they change all day..

and night.

They are even worth braving the cold on the beach to capture,

and worth getting up early to dog walk, be inspired by and come home and paint.

I can see why the landscape has, and continues to inspire artists, with its patchwork colours and textured furrows.

Nature always seems closer at hand when you’re on holiday, maybe it’s because we slow down and observe more…

or maybe it’s because it pokes its head over the gate to say hello!
