A pen and coloured pencils painting of Will Lotts Cottage
A painting of Willy Lotts Cottage using Pen with Coloured Pencils. When using pen to outline a painting, I like for the pen work to stand in it's own right before adding colour.
The pen element of this picture can be seen here.

A pen and coloured pencils painting of cottages beside a canal
A Mixed Media painting of a Cottage by the Grand Union Canal using Pen with Coloured Pencils. My first painting of this subject was in Pen & Wash. This particular version was an afterthought when I decided to experiment by applying coloured pencils to a pen drawing of the scene.

An acrylic  painting of an Old Lime Kiln
This painting of an old abandoned Lime Kiln was done by way of dipping my toe in the water with acrylics. I used them in much the same way as watercolour, mixing them with water. I like the way you can paint over mistakes but the colours seem flatter some how. For comparison purposes, I did the same picture in watercolour. I've also drawn it in pen.

A pen and coloured pencil sketch of a Beach garden
Spent a lovely few days on the east coast a few months ago and decided to attempt my first ever plein aire sketch. This was the view from our balcony looking out across the Beach Garden towards the sea. The initial sketch was in pen and then finished off using coloured pencils.

An Oil painting of Ross Castle
A subject I enjoyed painting in watercolours and I wanted to obtain a direct comparison between the two mediums. Again I found colours much too strong. My greatest difficulty was trying to paint the lake. I just couldn't figure out what to do to get a watery effect. Also see my pencil drawing

Ross Castle

An Oil painting of a bungalow
My first attempt with Oils. I found them much harder (and messier) than watercolours but did appreciate the way I could paint over mistakes. I tried a familiar subject for my first effort. I found the colours much too strong and struggled to lighten things up a bit. I think I thinned the oils too much but I was working on a small canvas and I found the oil difficult to apply using thin brushes.
