Pen and wash. First make sketch using water proof ink pen then apply a wash of water colour. It is a merger of two photos depicting the building either side of Manor Lane in Shrivenham the village where I now live.

Painting flowers based on a photo taken at Longcot Church flowers festival in 2015
I visited the local National Trust property near home a place called Buscot. Strolling around the gardens I was surprised to be confronted by these life size sculptors. I could not resist trying to make a painting from the photo I took. A4 size watercolour. A bit too heavy on the black shadows but it gives the gist of the scene.
This next is an exercise from a book using wet into wet watercolour.
The following 8 paintings are scenes from in and around Shrivenham which filled a book ( there were actually more pages but some had to be cut out as not up to worth keeping!)
This is a watercolour based on a sketch made when I sat in the sunshine at Coleshill in the Cotswolds.One day to make sketch and have a pic-nic. Second day to make a drawing for painting.Third day to paint in water-colour painted August 2015
This next picture is of Burford in the Costwolds Process similar fashion in water colour.
Keeping to the theme of the Costwolds this next is from a photo I took at the canal near Lechlade. It is a water colour.
