In July I started a one day a week residency at Rutland Water. I will be drawing in the hides over the summer and plan to host an exhibition of the work at the end of September in my studio. It is the most wonderful thing to sit in the quite hides and just see what comes along. Swans, geese, Osprey and duck of every shape are just a few. There are two nature reserves at the water, one at Egelton and the other at Lyndon both a short cycle ride away. I have 2 sketchbooks O am working in and then back in my studio using them for reference for new paintings and prints. I will be posting more about this over the coming weeks.
