Evening clouds over Cheverell
Had trouble deciding which direction to set up the easel, everything looked so interesting. Chose south west, a quick burst of painting as evening drew in. Got pretty cool in the wind and regretted wearing sandals! Then my bike had a puncture so had to walk home, lucky it wasn't far.
Oil on panel . 30 x 25cm.

St Brides Bay

ST BRIDES BAY (Pembrokshire)
Painted this from Broad Haven beach, looking into the sun, pretty blinding and my glasses Reacto lenses went very dark giving me false colours - so had to paint a lot without the glasses. Rather disorientating. Waves need more practise, they're a bit static here.
