Prickley things, nuts & seeds, water colour in Moleskine Sketchbook

What's not to Love about Autumn...? It's full of gifts. 
I was worrying last week that the conkers are too high to reach, and the very next day, I happened upon another tree which was abundant, at eye level! And once you start collecting them, its hard to stop. Delicious. They are lovely to paint, even the prickly sweet chestnuts, though they don't last so long and go brown very quickly. All the more reason to keep painting them NOW...!

This photo is to give you an idea of scale - the paintings are a little bigger than the actual chestnuts.

Next up - weekly classes in Belfast, Weekend Oils workshop and Water Colours AND Monthly Teenagers Class. For info email
The Distance Learning Course is also running, and you can start that at any time.
