A Little More From Far Away

Blue Chair. Oil. By Sarah Wimperis.
Having got home and unpacked my bags, mostly painting equipment and paintings, I have done a final count up and seem to have managed to have done 59 paintings in two weeks.  I am terrible at doing things after the event, blogging stuff that has been done and when the time has past I find difficult.  Not having the Internet for a week has also made me realise what a fantastic archiving system having a blog is! 
So while it is all fresh in my mind and before I get right back into illustration work and more painting I shall be making a page at the top of this blog, and on my blog The Red Shoes which will show all 59 paintings, large and small, oil, watercolour and gouache, good, bad and indifferent.  It is an archive, you might be interested to see what one, slightly obsessional, painter can do with two weeks.  I also want to say that every one was painted "en plein air" and "alla prima"  In other words, painted on the spot and in one hit!
I will, in later posts go through the materials used and any tips that I have learned from this trip.

Wow! These look amazing Sarah. I love the paint handling and colours. You've really got to the essence of the place. Looking forward to seeing all 59....that is some tally for 2 weeks!

I'll never tire of looking at these beautiful paintings, Sarah. I'm already having withdrawals not seeing four or five new ones each day! :)

great to hear about your plans for future posts.

"how to paint five paintings a day - day after day" would be a good one!
