Latest work

Well havent had much time at all to paint lately which is a bit depressing. Last wednesday I went to Hoo Marina near Rochester with the Wapping Group. It was very interesting and despite the weather being very poor to start it ended up as a very nice day. I didnt do as much as usual just 2  16 x 12s. I spent alot of time looking around in particular at the Ships Grave yard. There must be at least 20 redundant Thames Barges in different states of decay, all tethered together on the waters edge. At low tide it was quite a sight but difficult to make work as a painting. There were also a couple ofvery nice barges which I always enjoy painting. On staurday I only managed to get time to do one painting in Rye. I found a great little corner up by the church but alas the idea was better than the execution :-) Supposed to be of to Mortlake Brewery tomorrow with Wapping Group but not so sure I can afford the time this week. Only 2 and half weeks to my trip to Maine, so lots to do.

  1. Karl, My friend Susan Roux and I will be in Booth Bay the same time that you are with your group. Does your group have a name? Susan and you are a lot younger than me and she really wants to paint with your group one of the days. I believe I'll be content to just observe. Would that be ok?

    Your work is fantastic and I'm looking forward to meeting you at Booth Bay.
