|Painting at Belmont tower today|
|Towards Grantham from Belmont tower|
I've not been deliberately ignoring you honestly! I've been busy since Sunday with... portrait commission, framing, wrapping and posting paintings, getting mdf panels cut and prepping them for paintings, preparing for workshops and doing a demo yesterday at Bingham art group.
Today was my first day out painting. There are fantastic views from Belmont tower on the National Trust Belton House estate. It was a gorgeous bright morning but very windy up there! I had a couple of intrepid companions join me which was lovely, and even a blog subscriber I'd never met before came by to say hello which was really nice!
Here's a picture of the tower itself, which was right behind me (you can see my easel looking tiny on the ground!).
Also received the November issue of The Artist magazine, which has my article on Williamsburg oil paints in it, so that was nice to see!
Quick reminder to those in my area - I'll be at Brant Broughton art event this Saturday and Sunday, 10.30 am until 4.30 pm. Hope to see some of you there!
