    Beautifull Autumn day here yesterday in mid October

    Even better result as the couple who live in that house with the large apex walked over and bought it

    Great to have such a wonderfull hobby that pays for itself plus funds the Sat night takeaway

    A few shots of my frame making , basically I make two sorts of frames the float frames here and the more traditional frames

    I have access to odd bits of timber from a mate and a local timber yard at very much mates rates to use up odd bits

    last week I got hold of an absolute ton of the most delicious kiln dried Larch for an absolute song £30 just to get it out his way in his back garden , I will rip it all down the middle with my table saw and effectively get twice the amount to make frames with

    Earlier this year I built this small extension on my workshop to assemble my frames in

    Good news on this one , the couple who bought it have now requested two much bigger paintings of their property from other angles in the garden , apparently I’ve been told money isn’t a problem

    ^ Congrats Nigel you deserve it with the efforts you have put in to develop your style. I find your trees by water with reflections, and your seascapes are your strengths, they have really come on over the past few years.

    Ho ho ho - they might regret saying that later! just joking, youíre a man of integrity and will give them some beautiful paintings at a fair price for sure.

    Yes they are sailing barges but have engines to help at times of need , if you look at the right hand one you will see a couple of small figures to give an idea of scale ,, they really are huge when your next to them

    A sailing barge is a kind of barge (a shoal-draft flat-bottomed boat) propelled by sails. Traditional types of sailing barges include:

    I’ve set myself up a separate dedicated pallete with as near to exact colours John Constable used

    One of the main challenges here is to make those lovely blue greens he painted our countryside with , which in truth in nature these are closer to than a lot of the hideous garish greens a lot of artists including myself end up mixing

    His greens were formed with a mix of Prussian blue , cobalt blue and or yellow ochre , raw sienna plus touches of flake white , which is illegal now but I have the current equivalent of it

    Set myself a little practice challenge on a piece of paper yesterday using this pallete and as few brush strokes as possible and using just two brushes to replicate a little of the Salisbury cathedral scene

    Next time I go to paint out in Dedham ( if this bloody rain ever stops ) I shall have a go at producing two paintings of the same scene , one with Constables pallete and impressionistic style and one with my pallete and the way I normally fumble around .

    Had a little autumnal paint out in my home town of Frinton ,, Crescent Gardens where people love to come and sit ,, it was nice and sunny but very cold .
    Some dear old lady saw me from her home overlooking the gardens and brought me out a flask and poured me a coffee and a home made scone ,, absolutely delicious it was to .

    Anyway a rather nice hour and a half before two baskets of ironing

    I have just made a bit of a jig for my mitre saw for the new picture frames I’m making so a bit later on I will take some pics and share the info if anyone is interested in making your own frames it’s a fabulous bit of kit to make the job so much easier

    A couple of shots of my frame making with this beautifull Larch I got hold of

    You can see the sacrificial fence I made from some of the larch which is the way to go for repetitive frame cuts

    to make your frame mitres square and at right angles the opposing sides MUST be EXACTLY the same size

    I ripped these pieces down from 120mm boards into two 55mm pieces from each board , then cut out an 11mm rebate from the side I just sawn , again I made a jig for my table saw to do this as the shitty plastic blade surrounds on most cheap table saws will just submarine your work as you feed it through giving you a cut anything from 11mm to 20mm and is totally useless , I will take some photos of the jig I made for that a bit later

    after glueing up with Titebond premium I drill 50mm deep across through the mitres then glue in a 6mm hardwood dowel as shown in the last picture
