This is the first of four paintings I've produced recently on the banks of the river Stour, by Bryanston weir.
Those who have followed my work over the years will know that the river is a consistent theme in my paintings – and of all my locations this is one of the most frequently visited. This painting however differs in that I'm facing in a different direction to the view I have depicted more often in the past.
I'll post the other three paintings from this series in the next few days.
I've been working just as hard as ever, but I've had little or no internet connection at home now for some weeks. Following a visit from a BT engineer yesterday the problem is hopefully going to be resolved soon though.
The photograph above is the setup for another painting by the Stour at Bryanston in July. As soon as I can I'll post these up here and on my website I will.
I've also been painting some smaller canvases locally in south Dorset, and I'm working on an exciting project for my studio which I'll also explain more about in the next few weeks.
