Was so good to see her again, we couldn't believe that it had been last November when we last organised a 'paint out' in Brancaster.. After our delicious lunch of goat's cheese tart at the Heckington Farm cafe we headed off to the allotments for a spot of painting. They were massive and very well kept. We had a good walk round before deciding on our spot to paint. We stayed near each other so we could continue to chat.
We both have a very different approach to a painting. Haidee has a very good eye for composition and homes in on a subject where as I tend to take on the bigger picture. We were serenaded by a little Robin that continued to sing his heart out all the time we were painting. This was punctuated by a very noisy turkey not far away. The turkey looked to be missing a few feathers and was quite a character, he found his way into Haidee's picture. I chose a view of the river, liking the close colours and flat light.
