paintings from this week.

Well it doesnt feel like I ever went to France now that Im back in England and back to work. Its been a difficult week at work but Ive still managed to get quite a bit of painting done. Last Frday I went to London on business and then painted afterwards with my pochade box. I met up with my friend Roy and I also went to a great exhibition...Sergeant and the Sea...What that guy did when he was between 18 and 25 years old is stunning and also depressing :-) On Sunday I went to Bewl water for a family day out and sneaked in a couple of pochade box studies. Finally yeserday I went to Pinn Mill with the Wapping Group which was great..what a fantastic spot!

Pictures from the Cote D Azur

Ive just returned from 5 days painting with my friend Paul Rafferty in the Cote D Azur. We both worked very ard and did more than 15 paintings each...mostly 12 x 16s too which was exhausting, especially as it was so hot. I did a few I was happyish with but mostly dissapointed. Think I was trying too hard and in the company of a much more talented painter. That said I also feel I learned alot and had a great time!
