w.i.p a boat moored at Hengistbury Head

I've had a long break from my blog, during this time a lot of things have happened in my life, as a consequence my art had to be put on hold. My last exhibition was back in May, after which my studio was packed into storage in order to reveal our 4th bedroom, to aid the sell our house.
A big move for the family from Kingston which had been our home for 12 years, returning back to Dorset a place I called home some 20 plus years ago.

My new home and studio is in Bournemouth, and after being here a month or so I finally have unpacked my studio, and begun to work. The obvious change is the change of local scenes to inspire me. I really miss my walks into Richmond Park to watch the deer, however now I have the sea on my doorstep.

Hengistbury Head is a short drive away, or a beautiful cycle along the promenade, it is known for its colourful beach huts. This is my w.i.p so far, to get back into the swing of things I have keep the painting to a small scale. I'm only a couple of hours in and my painting doesn't feel very fluid yet, I guess that's due to my time out.
