Shipwreck before downpour!

After a lovely sunny morning seeing the local sights and drinking coffee in the bourg we went out to paint this afternoon.
The sky had clouded over in gloomy fashion, which seemed a good setting for painting the shipwreck it has to be said!
I was trialling my new Jullian easel (which I have christened Jubilee, in honour of the Queen's diamond jubilee) and patriotic umbrella. Thank goodness I had the umbrella is all I can say!
Luckily the others had left the beach and made it safely back to the house when the real downpour happened...


  1. It all sounds so wonderful! Wish I was there! Love scale of the ship and color too.

  2. Beautiful painting! Your ship fills the space nicely, and your brushstrokes are so confident. I tried painting in the dark cloudy weather today too, and couldn't pull it off. I need sun!

  3. Une très belle peinture... Vos couleurs sont fantastiques... Il ne doit pas être facile de peindre dans de telles conditions. Bravo !
    Gros bisous

  4. Love the size of the boat in the space. Terrific!


Thank you for your words!
