Whitby, UK • Off the coast of England. We drove through the Yorkshire moors all the way to this town and explored the old town, abbey, beaches and cliffs of black shale and even found a ton of fossilized sea shells! There were also old early 1900s shipwrecks littering the coast! Part of one is pictured in the second drawing.

If you’ve been seeing all my trip-spam on my personal account over the last two weeks then you already know I was travelling through England and Scotland. If you don’t follow my personal account then...that’s what I was doing! It was a ton of fun but I’m happy to be back and ready to get back atter. ♥️
“La vida aparece como algo siempre diferido: algo que no está donde está y que está donde no está. La vida está en otra parte. En otra parte y lejos, de manera que nunca es posible vivirla, sentirla directamente, sino únicamente diferirla, aplazarla.”
Hello from the Faroe Islands! I've been exploring these wild, ancient and overwhelming Islands for 5 days now and they've absolutely blown me away. I honestly don't think I've ever been anywhere that's inspired me as much!
If you've been following along on my stories you'll see that I've been exploring a lot of the Islands! I've also taken a ridiculous amount of photos of wild seas, jurassic cliffs and my elemental surroundings! I'll get round to sorting these and posting them in the next few weeks! In the meantime here's a few marks that I made in response to the elements whilst sat atop a high cliff trying now to be blown about by the wind! I love these Islands so much!
At Studio #70 is artist and filmmaker Eric Saks (@joshuatreefort).
Eric creates in multiple mediums, from painting to video. He is still working on his first cookbook and likes to trade his work for rare bottles of wine or art from other artists.
Participating: First weekend only.
Had a painting day today 😄 loving using some slightly different colours than my usual cyan, magenta and yellow. Just introducing some other subtly different pigments while keeping my style pretty consistent 🎨 still a work in progress 😬
There is a kind of magic that happens when you paint outside. The first time the Sketch Club visited Fleetwood Farm Vineyard, it was incredibly hot. I decided not to stay and paint but to take photos to work from in the studio. My poor photography skills did not capture the image the way I wanted however, so I determined to paint outside the following week, no matter how hot it was. I bit off more than i could chew with this one, and had to finish in the studio, but I had gotten enough down on location that I was content to finish with my photos. The landscaping at Fleetwood Farm is so beautiful, I still wish I had stayed to paint that first day, because there are so many other lovely parts of the garden that I'd like to paint.
I suppose that I will continue to work for some time in the topic of stones and waterfalls. So the new picture captures the attention of many colors. But I'm so tempted to start research on light and shadows. New landscapes, new discoveries. What topic do you want to disclose for yourself now or soon?
Полагаю, что я ещё некоторое время буду работать в теме камней и водопадов. Вот и новая картина захватывает внимание множеством цветов. Но меня так и манит возможность начать исследования света и теней. Новые пейзажи, новые открытия. Какую тему вы хотите раскрыть для себя?
