The poppies in the garden this year were glorious. These oriental poppies were painted out in the garden with the bees buzzing around. I thought that the painting would also look good cropped into a panorama format and so used it for my festival banner.

The Pittenweem Arts Festival starts on the 2nd August and running until the 10th August. My web site has a page showing some of the paintings I will be exhibiting. See my Pittenweem Arts Festival 2014 page.

Pittenweem Arts Festival 2013

Last year we had great weather, this year it was fantastic. The festival was very busy with people enjoying the beach as well as the artwork.

Every artist gets a blue board with their venue number and I add a painted driftwood sign because my venue is split between the wash house and the shore path (under gazebos).

This year the town was decorated with bicycles for Pittenweem In Bloom. At my venue we had a green bike and it was themed after Mary’s amazing garden.

There was some time to relax and inspired by Vivian Maier I took a self portrant.

Pansies, Watercolour

I took my pot of pansies from the garden into the studio. This allowed me to work away with the advantages of the light not changing much throughout the day. I put them on my window sill which is just at nice level for me to paint while standing at my easel. I worked in watercolour and finished off with using neocolour water soluable wax pastels.
