Going Solo: Stage 5



Not often a breakaway manages to win the stage, but it does happen!
Belgian Greg Van Avermaet traversed the final two category climbs alone 
to take line honours and the yellow jersey in Le Lioran on Stage 5 of the Tour de France.

Final Effort: Stage 4


Kittel, first, Coquard, second and Sagan, third, are racing to the line.

Are they close?: Stage 3



Breakaway group, Stage 3, 2016. I love the body language in this sport. 
I've painted a small group without background so as to emphasise the simplicity of their posture.

Bridport Warm Water


On our tour of Tasmania, I loved painting the rocks and blue-green waters around the north east side of the island. It as crystal clear water, and such a warm temperature for swimming.
If anyone is interested in visiting Australia, I suggest you spend a month or two in Tasmania. In a motorhome! It has the same attractions as the mainland without the hundreds of kilometres in-between stops.

Plein air painting with a touch of studio work after.


Summer Waves


A Tasmanian Seascape. Painted on location, finished in the studio.
Originally one of my rejects in the corner. It's been slowly growing on me.

Lagoon Stairs


A painting from my Tasmania Travels: I painted this 'plain air' then finished it in the studio. I think this technique suits me: especially painting on paper. It's strong and receptive to watercolour techniques, as well as being good for think texture later. Acrylics dry fast, and the works can be stored in an art folder as we travel in the motorhome.

Wild Rocks at Stanley






I started painting while sitting on the rocks, but soon moved into the van. High tide and rain not my friend! 60 x 42cm

Breakers at Chain of Lagoons Beach


I painted this larger work at the beach in Tasmania. It was done 'plain air' with a bit of fiddling back at the motorhome.  The rocks are always my point of interest as they look great, and recent scientists have linked them to the North America! Who'd a thought!?!

Early Morning Rhine


I've had fun re-working this watercolour. It is a typical view of the Rhine from the ship, looking upstream into the morning sun and mist. It was October and the sun was low. Adding the acrylic paint with a palette knife bought the scene to life. Might be a turning point for me. 

Summer Road

Loved travelling through Tassie, as the distances were much shorter than on the mainland, and the summer was very mild.

Recherche Cold Waves





I painted this while perched on the rocks. It was a great position, high and dry! The sea was cooler as we were close to the Antartic! (Bob took a pic of me which I'm using now as my profile pic.)

Five Mile Beach in Tasmania.


Five Mile Beach. Such an ordinary name for a beautiful expanse of seaside in Tasmania. 
We have been touring the small island at the bottom of Australia for 5 weeks (February-March) and I 
painted a few works like this tree study along the way.
Husband Bob and I have bought a motor home, and this was our first big trip.
Can recommend this type of holiday: freedom to choose a new destination every day.

Golden Dawn at Narooma Beach


We have started a trip to Tasmania, and this lovely beach was our first stop on the way.
It is in our own state of New South Wales, and deserves a longer stay!

Waiting for Rain


Our backyard dam is only half full, and we know that rain is coming next week.
It will make a difference, as we use the water for our garden. 
I painted this in the midday sun, with only a few bites from ants.. 
no sign of the death adder that crossed my path last month.  
It disappeared down towards this dam, so it's here somewhere!

Kiama in the Morning Sun



At a little cove called Easts Beach, Kiama, south of Sydney.
I was painting while perched on the rocks, but had to move back as the tide came in.
We were staying in our motorhome at a 'holiday park' nearby. (BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park)
Very quiet and peaceful in the spring.
