Greenwich observatory

Greenwich observatory

Work in progress with preparatory sketch

I'm sorry that I've neglected you for a few days but I'm full of cold, so I've mostly been blowing my nose and feeling sorry for myself! I did manage to get off to London yesterday and had a day painting with the jolly nice Wapping group. We were extremely fortunate with the weather, though there was a fairly stiff breeze up here on the hill so I wore my woolly hat and mittens! 
Time for winter painting kit I think, no more Mr Sunhat!
I had to be really quick with the sky on this one, and I got blinded several times when the sun peeked through the clouds!


  1. Oh wow, these are just beautiful. You don't need to do much..., I'd almost leave the foreground as is. Such a sky, and such light. Sounds like a great day with your Wapper friends.

    Please don't start talking about winter, I can't bear it. I'm not through painting outside yet! Lucky you, with a mild English winter.

    1. I am leaving this one as it is Bobbi, sometimes you know that extra fiddling isn't going to add any benefit :-)


Thank you for your words!
