seeing the magnificent in the mundane

This area is really partly a piece of waste land that is still under construction, but I find it quite a beautiful scene. because there is a wide feel of distance which I love in city scenes. Also, the winter grass with its golden brown color is beautiful. In fact, this painting doesn't do full justice to the beauty of this scene and I know that I will paint this scene many more times trying to capture that beauty. If you look carefully at the sky you might even see where a few drops of rain fell on the picture. I was really lucky today as the rain was very light and periodic.

I really enjoyed painting this picture. I had an army of school children walking past me while I was painting making complimentary compliments which was great.

Today, was really cold and I was shivering while I painted this picture, but it did make me work quickly. What I like best about this picture was the soft shadow of the nearest tree.

Today, was really cold. The sun was often hidden by a low bank of clouds until I had finished! And there was a constant cold wind blowing up the river. However, I had a great time even if I was shivering a little.

Today, I had the chance to paint women in kimonos. It was quite a challenge and I need some more practice but it was a lot of fun.
