|Four plein air pieces, needing a little extra something...|
Joyously I'm back, back in the studio today and here's what I've been 'breaking myself in' with...
I've found the four plein air paintings pictured above which all need a little extra work. The sunset was painted only a few weeks ago and below that my god daughter painted in a friend's garden in 2010... the two on the right painted on my last trip to Venice...
Also I've been excitedly playing with my new small and extremely portable pochade box... what we will call from now on the 'dog walking box', or even better 'Rover'. I ordered it from http://www.pochadeshop.co.uk/ and so far I am delighted with it. I now need desperately some 6" x 8" boards!! I had a lot of fun kitting it out and had a complete rejig and refresh of my usual Mabef pochade box too (we call her Mabel). Here they are together..
|Little and large|
As if that wasn't all excitement enough I went the whole hog and prepped twenty six boards... yep, pretty sure I'll be in the mood for painting tomorrow!
Sorry for chatting too much, I must have missed you! :)
