Art in England

I recently returned from a joyous whirlwind of visiting family in England with my husband, the Brit. I’m pleased to report that although I usually manage to squeeze in a few watercolor studies, this year I was able to use fast-drying oil paint and make a few small oil paintings as well.

First, let me share with you the sketches I completed in my faithful 5 x 8 travel moleskin watercolor sketchbook:

As for the oil paintings, I used Windsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd fast-drying oil paints on my go-to 6 x 6 gessobords:
