Colour sketches.

I have been painting colour sketches again of late, principally because I haven’t had time to get down to painting for any length of time.  These are all about 18 x 24. They are in acrylics which is not my usual medium, I still prefer painting in oils, despite the smell of turps :

The first one I started in acrylics, finished in oil, the last 3 are in oill:

We try to get out and do some sightseeing occasionally, here are a few photos from some of this year’s Sunday outings:

A wintry visit to Cahors and a view of its wonderful 14 century bridge:


On the bridge,  steps worn down by thousands of traipsing feet.


Château Duras basking in the winter sun:


Lastly a view of our local canal reflecting the rich royal blue sky:




I wish I could say the weather was like this this week, but no, the March rains are with us at the moment. Yesterday, however,  in between showers I managed to take this early evening shot of the house before the heavens opened once again!
