The New Year begins

A very Happy New Year to all my blog-followers! I’m sorry not to have posted anything lately, but we have been away enjoying the sunshine in Madeira. Watch for one or two Madeira mountain paintings in due course.

Looking forward to 2013 I will be commencing my final term of weekly watercolour courses at West Norfolk Arts Centre in a couple of weeks, but beyond that I will still be doing plenty of teaching. Weekends and other workshops, plus there will be more opportunities for small groups to join me here at the studio in Dersingham.

Speaking of the studio, the Christmas Open Studio that I held in early December was very successful, and thanks to all those who visited. Here’s a photo of one of the paintings that was sold. It’s a small work in watercolour and Indian ink, only about 6ins x 8ins and shows the ruins of St James church Bawsey, near King’s Lynn. An iconic West Norfolk landmark.
