I had plans to paint all winter as I have a north facing studio. However my fall in November did more damage than we thought. Most of the cold months were spent at the physiotherapist getting my shoulder working again. The good news it that it’s probably 95% healed but I am still doing a daily routine of stretching and strengthening.....no quite there yet.
I have been working on this seaside painting intermittently and today I think it’s finished. My studio is a little cold , think garret and my fingers were stiffening after a couple of hours. The scene is in England and it’s either Pennington or Lymington. I was quite fascinated by the blending of the old and new, a good town planner. A cool blustery day with amazing clouds.
Today it has warmed up slightly after gale force winds last night and we are expecting 10 degrees on Thursday. I sketched out a new painting this afternoon.....spring in Havari last year. The young grapes just outside of the village had been pruned and looked just lovely. In the background redbud trees and various other trees starting to blossom. A clump of cypress on the right.
