I've already mentioned on this blog the wonders of the Open Studios this month - well yesterday afternoon I took a walk across the fields to the nearest open studio - Roger R Jones at Somerdale, Townsend (almost opposite the convent) - the first time since I've been living here he has opened his home to show off a large collection of seascapes, landscapes and waterways.
After enjoying the pics it was tea on the terrace and some very enjoyable talk about Roger's journey from BBC Producer for the Natural History Unit to painting - now apart from his own painting he runs courses in this country and abroad - and he was kind enough to give a couple of important tips on oil painting. He will be open Sat and Sun next weekend as well. Well worth a visit. You can read more here on his website:
