Yesterday I went to a little spot I discovered a while ago, which has a great view and is quiet and secluded. Perfect for some undisturbed painting. I took my new box easel, with stay-wet palette in the drawer, and sat on a plastic laundry bag with an apron to protect my coat. Woolly hat, sunglasses and plenty of layers as it is still a bit cold for this lark. The tide was out so there were mud flats and raised areas of foliage, with little inlets. Plenty to try and paint. I spent an hour or so, and the paints started drying on the palette in the wind, but not too bad. Used some card edges to make small sharp marks. Anyway, this is the first of several, and I hope to go there again next Friday morning, weather permitting.
