Onions all ways bring to mind still life’s of old. I think it’s there loverly earthy colours so comparable with the Zorn pallet. The glob form is also a pleasure to paint along with the different textures found in and around this humble Allium.
Always a joy to see the little snow drops poke the heads up through the cold January mud. They opened up as soon as they came into the studio and lasted surprisingly well for wild flowers. A hole three days before the first signs of wilt.

Decided to have a closer look at the barge tat was in the Monday painting of Albert Bridge from chelsea bridge. Looking into the sun made this a painting of extra value shifts. So nice to smell the salt water off the Thames as I worked. A glorious morning on Chelsea embankment.

Enjoyed painting St Mary’s so much thought I’d do it again from a different location, the car park. It was the end of the day and the sun was going down creating striking contrasts.

Lovely to be outside painting in the glorious sunshine in the charming town of Saffron Walden.

Another grey day painting in London. Senses sharped by a bitter wind coming off the Thames. All ways so inspiring to see the old girl.
