Fine Art Original Watercolour Painting - Framed

During a family holiday in Chamonix, France with our daughter and grandchildren. We took two trips up the spectacular Aiguille du Midi which we would gaze at every day from our apartment in Chamonix.

On each trip up this dramatic peak, accessed by cable car, I did a sketchbook watercolour, one of Mont Blanc, which became the catalyst for this 16″ x 12″ studio watercolour.

Chamonix Paintings France

During a family holiday in Chamonix, France with our daughter and grandchildren. We took two trips up the spectacular Aiguille du Midi which we would gaze at every day from our apartment in Chamonix.

On each trip up this dramatic peak, accessed by cable car, I did a sketchbook watercolour, one of Mont Blanc, which became the catalyst for this 16″ x 12″ studio watercolour.

Such an occasion arose in July 2015 when Susan and I took our daughter and her children to Chamonix in France. We bought passes for the cable cars in the region and went up Aiguille du Midi which overlooks Mont Blanc. Paintings of Chamonix became my focus on Sketchbook Paintings for the week.

Chamonix Paintings France can be viewed at Alan Reed Art Gallery in Ponteland, Newcastle upon Tyne.

View from Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix

I did a sketchbook watercolour which was the inspiration for a studio painting “View from Aiguille du Midi”. This is currently on view at my Studio and Gallery in Ponteland. We were so taken by the stunning views that my daughter and I returned again, very early morning. I did a second sketchbook study which became the catalyst for “Mont Blanc and Manganese Blue”.

On 29th January I was notified that my painting of Mont Blanc and Manganese Blue had been selected Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition 2016. It’s the second time one of my paintings has been chosen.

The painting will be on show at the Bankside Gallery, London Friday 4th to Wednesday 16th March
