DAY 2 - LYMPSTONE HARBOUR
Another sunny day, so we met our tutor *Ray Balkwill at the Harbour in Lympstone.
|Setting up his easel for a demo - first choosing the scene to paint|
|This view was chosen, although there were lots of options. In the end you have to make a decision and stick with it.|
Ray decided to include Darling Rock (I found a blogpost by Wayland Wordsmith with some info about it, so click here if you would like to read)
Then it was time for us to find our own scene to paint.
Being such a hot day, I decided to walk around the point to the shaded side
and chose this view looking across the estuary
|Starting with Thumbnail sketches to decide on my subject|
|This painting needs more work, but this is where it stood at the end of our day en plein air painting|
As you see, it was a gorgeous place for painting and everyone enjoyed the day.
