Ten Mile Bank viewed from Brandon Creek

By Ashley, 07/24/2009 1:04 pm

I painted this view, another in my Fenland Series,  of Ten Mile Bank near Brandon Creek in June. I painted this wet in wet with mostly a large brush as I rushed to capture the vivid blue fen sky and the morphing clouds.

New painting titled Fen Storm

By Ashley, 06/22/2009 3:51 pm

Fen Storm is a different painting to my recent work, it is painted with free , expressive and large brush strokes. I really enjoyed painting this and will work in this way on future paintings. I hope I have managed to capture the atmosphere off being caught in the storm – I got totally soaked during this storm.

Finished this painting of a Spring Morning at St Ives just in time to go into the Landscape II  exhibition at Williams Art Gallery.  I only had minutes to sketch and photograph the April sky before it changed again.

Out in the fens again

By Ashley, 04/22/2009 11:03 pm

I spent much of my weekends in the fens again. My wife and my oldest son had a lovely walk along the Counter Wash drain in Mepal towards the old pumping station and onto to Manea. We were rewarded by seeing a pair of Great Crested Grebes courting. The walk has inspired me to work on a painting (study) of a view looking from the drain towards Chatteris.

Another walk took us through Ramsey Forty Foot and Benwick, it was cold blustery day and I must admit the  highlight was  a nice pint of Deuchars IPA in a friendly pub in Ramsey.

Sunrise on the fens

By Ashley, 03/17/2009 11:49 am

I have just completed a new oil painting for my fenland series – literally the paint is still wet.  

It is 24 x 18 inches and on a deep canvas so does not need a frame.

Fenland Rise is another work in my fenland series of landscape paintings. I wanted to capture the overcast morning light that spread across the rapeseed and ploughed fields near the fen town of Whittlesey .
