Dorset and back to the Thames

A busy week visiting dodging the rain and stopping to paint whenever possible.

In Hampshire, though there are no trees this is part of the New Forest. 16in by 10in


Hambledon Hill in Dorset. Watercolour 11in by 9in


A St Mary's at Hartley Wintney, 16in by 10in


This is Castle St in Farnham


Thames near Runnymede. 16in by 10in.


Runnymede again, a very quick sketch 10in by 8in.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

Some really impressive painting here, Rob, but there is something rather special about "St Mary's".

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

Impressive. I like how the road, which isn't usually a focal point, stands out in the first one. There is a real calmness about "Thames near Runnymeade".

All are very good.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

A tour de force as always Rob, wonderful compositions in all of them. I’m going to have to spend some time trying to work out why they are so successful Dave

Great paintings. I really like the one with the church - very moody light.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

Wow ... your work is always impressive, Rob! All are wonderful paintings but I'm a fan of St. Mary's too. The gray color unites the tombstones, church and cloud and makes for great mood and harmony.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

All are impressive. I like St. Mary's too but I am particulary drawn to Runnymede (lights on the boats I think).
Interesting format to me at least. I have never tried 10X16 but I think I like it.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

I cannot believe where you are going with your wonderful paintings, Hartley Wintney, Farnham.... my daughter goes to St. Mary's, was married there. I used to drive through Farnham on the way to Fleet. the kiosks at the end of Castle street is a flower shop... Wonderful paintings! Spot on.

Re: Dorset and back to the Thames

Thanks all, it's great to go new places and paint and also visit old favourites. There is a tendency I have which is that once I have painted a place I cross it off, but really you could paint in just one small area and never run out of new paintings to do. Farnham is a very attractive town, I had only driven past before but I will return to do more.
Rob
