I did pop along today to see everyone and managed to squeeze in a very quick painting.
Wells Next The Sea 8" x 8" oil on board
It was so good to see the artists, some of whom I painted with in Norwich last year and some I knew of but hadn't met before.
This was also a trial run for painting out with Barney. He is now 8 months old and getting calmer. I had to leave him on his own while I did the workshop this week and although he was good I don't think he likes being on his own too much and I don't like to leave him
He was brilliant and sat by my easel as I painted. He sat by my feet when we went aboard the boat which was the hub for the artists. (Had to carry him up the gangplank though) Also, he was good and quiet in the car, it's over an hours drive to Wells and I didn't hear a murmur. Barney is the reason I have been painting so many still life pics, now I know he's ok I may be able to get back out plein airing again.
