Great day out painting on Whitstable Beach

I have been so lucky with the weather!

This week is very spring like;  I spent 4 hours at  Whitstable yesterday and have come home with 3 paintings;  these are my first since I was in France in January.  It was a lovely day for my sort of painting! A busy sky, lots to capture, the sea had lots of colours in it. It was windy, so thank you to John for making screw holes in my box easel to hold down the palette!  Still wet and some stray pebbles to sort! – see these below!

Ann Palmer is a landscape painter based in Rochester, Kent and in the Loire Valley chateau and vineyard region where she owns cottages to rent. She works ‘en plein air’ in oils in Kent and in Touraine in the Loire Valley; her subject matter includes the valleys and coasts of Kent and the vineyards and Chateaux of France. Ann works quickly, resulting in a freshness which is impressionistic yet creates a clarity of subject and defines the mood of the day. Ann uses artist quality oils on acrylic primed MDF using both brushwork and palette knife.
