At the beginning of 2017 I became the volunteer Artist-in-Residence @ Arlington Court National Trust Devon - Watch out for my posts about it.

Completed painting.....

.....worked in my studio on the painting I started at Arlington Court the other day.



I wanted to give the full width view face on, but also show that it is set in extensive grounds with a large lawned area in front of it.  That I believe I achieved.

Very happy with the result, 
but I do intend to do more paintings of this scene, perhaps in varying styles.

At the time I also did some sketching, that helps a lot for later reference and seems to fix the scene in my brain.  The sketchbook will be nice to look back over at a later time too, so I chose a concertina sketchbook for this and hope to make this a 'Journey around Arlington Court'.








here's a very short clip video of the sketchbook so far....


Looking forward to filling this sketchbook in.


Having sat in front of the property, it has given me a good feel for it 
(much better than any photograph could do).

  1. Really lovely Ann, I so enjoy seeing your work!

    --And again, I'm reminded of the British influence here in Virginia, we have an "Arlington" not very far from us. :-)

    1. Thanks Robin, I hope so. The sketchbooks I'll keep for my own reference, but the paintings in matt boards can be copied as Prints too, if they want to do that. Will be interesting to see what kind of gallery I will have produced by the end of the season.
