a new day
This is the second painting that I recently did of the same scene. This one from a different angle.

What a blast. I would have stayed all night except that we were all recovering from various lurgies. That said, I painted in the window for almost two hours, chatted to loads of people and had a great time.[singlepic id=1355 w=400 h=500 float=]
I had prepared the canvas with a coloured ground at home and also done allot of the work of the underpainting beforehand too.[singlepic id=1354 w=400h=500 float=]
The rest of my clan wandered about and enjoyed the samba band, the galleries and all the various entertainment. Here’s my mum Patricia and my youngest, Bethan in fine form. Mad as hatters both![singlepic id=1359 w=400 h=500 float=]
The most exciting part of the night for me was when people who read my blog came to say hi. I was so excited that I didn’t really get their names. But it was fabulous to meet them and chat.
And to top it off there was nice mention in the Mail on Sunday.[singlepic id=1358 w=400 h=500 float=] [singlepic id=1357 w=400 h=500 float=]
