Enjoyable couple of days inside over Xmas but desperate to get out and paint as soon as the rain stopped. Determined to get three paintings done in a day. In the end pleased to come home with three paintings that would not require that much more work in the studio. The last one was painted looking towards the setting sun which meant all the tones were really simplified – something I will try again. Tomorrow morning off to my first life drawing session of the year – can’t wait. Going to a session over in Northamptonshire which is three hours, so I can complete an oil painting.
