Whitby in October


That’s beautiful Diana.

Nothing wrong with these boats Diana a really nice painting.

Fabulous work

Love your palette Diana and the way you have tackled the buildings in this complex painting. You have not overdone detail, yet there’s loads to observe and enjoy. You have done a grand job of this Diana. Give yourself a pat on the back.

This is wonderful, I dont know why you shy away from boats and outdoors your fab

Thank you Paula. It was a really memorable day. Thanks Barry. There has been much amusement over my attempts. Thank you a Romila. Looking at the painting in first light today, it’s grown on me. That’s lovely to read Carole . That was ex actually what I was hoping to achieve.. Thank you Jennifer . My tutor asks me the same but can’t understand why I make such a pigs ear or many of our exercises. 😂

Well they aren’t easy to get right Diana, but these look pretty good, with great reflections, nicely painted.

Very generous Alan and thanks for the encouragement. I had to go atmosphere over accuracy 😂

I always like the contrasts that you put into your paintings Diana and this is no exception. Excellent.

Really good Diana

Your boats rock...stunning light too!

Beautiful colours and light.

Thank you Stephen. The light was excellent that day with lovely dark clouds too. Thank you Heather , this was co close to being binned Thank you Thalia. Definitely atmosphere over technique with this one. Thank you Jacky . The light really was wonderful. I haven’t really done it justice

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imperial watercolour. It is well known at my weekly watercolour class that I struggle with boats and shy away from outdoor scenes. I loved the colours of this sun and storm clouds It’s rough around the edges but I made myself complete it.
