Summerhouse time...

It rained off and on all day yesterday, so today with the sun shining we decided to get out in the

garden and enjoy the summerhouse...





and a great opportunity for me to take my paints and sketchbook out there -






  ~   an impromptu outdoor studio....ahhhhh  bliss  ~


here's the view from inside looking out...

    1. I really like this palette Cris...it's really good for mixing and the sections hold a lot of tube paint. I work with it the way round you see in the photo, as I'm left-handed it's better that way round, most people use them the other way round (hope that makes sense) lol.

    1. It's lovely, makes more use of the garden too, some days it would be much too windy or cold to sit outside, this way we get the best of both worlds :-)

  5. Just perfect! It keeps the paints from drying up in the sun, and from getting watered down if it's raining!
    I like green plants in the garden.... I just planted a fern, some variegated hostas and some ornamental grasses.... all assorted shades of green.

    1. It is perfect Shammickite. Like the sound of variegated hostas, in fact I like variegated plants generally.

    1. We do enjoy the garden, not that we're gardeners as such, but the plants don't know that, lol ;)
