Church at Auvers-sur-Oise

I had had it on mind for sometime to do a painting standing at the same place Vincent van Gogh stood to paint the church at Auvers-sur-Oise. Also time lapsing it with the background scene and the painting on view. So during the evening of Sunday 28th July 2019 I thought shall I try in the morning or leave it till Wednesday. (Actually I hadn’t painted en plein-air for a while now and I was probably looking for an excuse not to do it) Anyway when the alarm went at 04:45 the next morning to my surprise I did get up and drove to the church. When I arrive sunrise is coming up to reveal a load of building works and a portable toilet in front of the church, affording me a second chance to leave it for another day. But I went for it, thinking I am here now.Read More

Minerva Pub in Looe Street Plymouth

Here is the film of my painting of the Minerva Pub, in Looe Street Plymouth. While standing in the shade of a tree a lady who I had never met before asked me if I had enough water to drink. I said that I was being well looked after by Shelly, Martin and Kerri from the pub. She warned me to take care standing outdoors for so long on such a hot day and went on her way. An hour later she returns and hands me a large bottle of water, a sandwich and some grapes. Still no idea who this angel of mercy is.
