Painting 'Al Fresco' .


Been rather warm of late ( well for the U.K. ) and so I took the dog out for a quick walk at Five this morning , when we got back we decided to go to the coast for a walk before it got to hot . After our walk we had breakfast at Mc Donald's - if you think their burgers are naff you should try their breakfasts - how can somebody make a balls up of bacon and eggs !? . On returning home I decided to paint some figures outside on the patio , not that good an idea on reflection the light was a bit 'glarey ' and the paint kept drying out even on my 'wet palette', however it is summer so you have to make the most of it .


The livestock seek shelter under the table .

  1. Tony,
    Good to see you and the pets enjoying the Summer Sun - I was in London in April- May of 2015...pretty cold and rainy then- looks to be very much warmer for you there in June....model painting outside- now that IS something I've never done- have to try it sometime. Cheers. KEV.

  2. Had a bit of a wet June so far , but a fine weekend and we all complain it's to hot , not sure painting outside is a success or not

  3. Ah, but you got outside and enjoyed two walks plus some hobby time. McDonald's notwithstanding (I can hardly eat their food anymore), sounds like a delightful day to me.

    Best Regards,

    Stokes

    1. Charlie the dog doesn't like the heat , the cats seem to just disappear into the undergrowth and manage it better. Tony
