Riding the Alpes

I'm doing a few 'landscape' Le Tour paintings lately: my two favourite subjects combined.

 This work is one of a "MEMORIES" series, painted in August, depicting a scene from the Tour of France. Rather than a photographic record, I like to capture an impression of a stage, sometimes showing a rider, sometimes a group or team. Sometimes I combine two or more scenes to create the image.
This is a 7 day auction on eBay.

 If you'd like to buy a TDF painting I have 27 paintings from previous years on my online shop.

Watercolour on White Arches 300gsm paper
 31cm x 41cm, (12in x 16in). It will be posted flat, supported by MDF.

Happy customer!

Happy to receive photos of my 3 paintings framed and hung in their home. They are three of my best paintings, so I'm very happy to see them like this.

Works in progress

Hello! It's been a while since I have posted on my blog. I've been busy with an open studio, Christmas, new puppy!, and now I'm working on a new show in May.
These paintings are of a beach on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.
White sand, tanin stained water, lots of dead wood.
Not such a romantic sea scape!!

I'll post again soon, with updates!

Stage 15 Mountains

Sometimes the scenery becomes the star of the show! 
One of the main reasons TDF is so popular is those rolling hills!

This was 30km out from the finish

Winter Sun Waning

"Winter Sun Waning"
by Shirley Peters
An oil sketch done on location.

The track is called Nulunga Walking Track, and there are lovely beach and rock platform views from it. We are holidaying nearby, and I found these rocks too good: bit rushed, though, as the tide was incoming! And the sun was waning.
