Guest artist at Nunnington Galleries

view of the Howardian Hills from Nunnington Galleries

The owners of Nunnington Galleries Kevin and Jan Bradshaw invited us to paint in the garden of Kevin’s mum Margaret, who lives right next to the gallery in Nunnington. She has got a lovely garden and a […]

Sky Landscape Artist of the Year

Phil Reynolds on Sky Landscape Artist of the Year

Back in June last year I competed in a heat of Sky Landscape Artist of the Year that was filmed in Knaresboro. I had wrote a post about it but seems to have deleted itself from my blog. Here is my second draft. It was an interesting and challenging experience. Looking back on it now […]

Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens workshop

Another successful outdoor session at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens at the end of May. The weather was fair and it is a stunning place to enjoy an en plein air painting day. The planting, peace and atmosphere is lovely and we get the place to ourselves for the day. This workshop is about mixing the simple elements […]

Revisiting Terrington view

A few weeks ago the weather was perfect and I managed to persuade fellow artist Patrick Smith to join me on a painting trip. 21 degrees,  sunny intervals, light breeze, what more could you want? We went to a place we had been before in the Howardian Hills not far from Terrington . I have […]

Ellergill 2016

This was the fourth trip to the bunk barn in Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales and it was a resounding success. So much so that the majority of the people who went this year have signed up for next year. We had great weather, a bit breezy on Saturday but with that we got some lovely […]

Ellergill 2015

Another great weekend in Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales. We were forecast heavy rain but hardly had a drop. Great company, laughs and of course painting. It is a lovely remote location perfect for our artistic needs. Below is one of my pieces of work.

It aims to develop and investigate a residency model […]

Ellergill weekend

I would like to post a few photos from this weekend away with me and six others. I do not have many images of other peoples work at present but will put them on as I acquire them. It was a great weekend. Much quieter than the previous one due to a few people unable […]

Ellergill outdoor painters

We had a great time at Ellergill in Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales. It was a great venue, fantastic scenery ( though a bit too green for some) and lovely weather. I am determined to return next year. The barn was great as long as you realise it is bunk barn accommodation and you can […]
