New painting of Ventnor

This was drawn on location the same day as my other new Ventnor work – Ventnor Haven. I’m really pleased with both and they work well as a pair too. I really enjoyed working at A2 size and was able to add a lot of detail with the dip pen too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting it.

Sketching in the early morning sun

I had time to spend in Wootton today having dropped the car off for a service at 8am. I had a couple of hours to spare so decided a walk and sketch were in order. It was cold but sunny, so sunny the sun was like a torch beam with untouched pockets full of damp cold air and mist. I started with a pleasant stroll through agricultural land, marshes and forrest to come out at Wootton creek. After walking backwards and forwards for a while looking suspicious I found the perfect spot to sketch and here is the result, I thoroughly enjoyed the wobbly boat reflections. The row of posts looks like little sea creatures, each slightly different.
