Landscapes - Ann Hyde

Thought I would start you all off with the
new Theme


for the Whole month of February


  1. Oh Ann, you are going to force me to go outside for this one! Yours is lovely. What and where is it please? I like the one theme for a whole month idea. Wonder what others think of it?

  2. Hi Lynn, this is Arlington Court where Graham and I volunteer. The landscapes over there are so good, a wealth of options for me in this month's theme. Plus on some exciting news, I am now Arlington Court's Volunteer Artist. That will be my role for the season, to go over there and capture in watercolour their lovely vistas (some acrylics and sketching work too no doubt), it will be fun to see how this all evolves during the season. Visitors will be told where to find me on any particular day, and come up watch me paint and chat...I'm so looking forward to it.

    1. Ann, congrats! This is huge! What an honor to be given this responsibility, and how lucky are they to have you! I have no doubt you will do them proud! Will you be allowed to selll your paintings there? I hope so!

    2. Thanks Lynn, I've always wanted to do paintings of the scenes over there and now I can. Can't tell you how excited I am.

  3. Oh, and when the paintings are completed, I will donate them to Arlington. They will be able to get prints made for various different things like cards, placemats etc and also sell the original if they want to.

    1. Well, it's my 'give back' to them time. The National Trust work hard to keep these places in good condition, but need all the help they can get, I thought this would be my way of doing that :)

  4. Your theme is fine and painting lovely.
    Happy PPF ♥
