At the beginning of 2017 I became the volunteer Artist-in-Residence @ Arlington Court National Trust Devon - Watch out for my posts about it.

A bike ride, a walk and some sketching...


CROW POINT & BRAUNTON BURROWS  made for a perfect bike ride.   It follows the estuary and at the Point turns the corner to the open sea.





the bike ride down the private road was an opportunity for me to take some photos.  This definitely needs to be a visit in itself for sketching and some plein air painting.




It didn't take long to ride down to this....







Is it old age, but I couldn't remember the name for those large A-Framed metal things in the field (you can just see them in the pic....then husband said they're called PYLONS...oh yes so they are).








Husband walked William whilst I sketched







although he was a little bit tired when we stopped for our picnic.

  3. Ah Ann gorgeous photos and your sketches are wonderful as well. The last pic of William made me smile for sure. He certainly looks quite tuckered out! Have a great day. Hugs!

    The weather really has not been summer like recently, but it's always nice to get out and about if we can.
    Lovely post, thank you.

    All the best Jan

    1. Thanks Jan, we finally had a sunny day, just hope it will continue. I've noticed the evenings starting to get shorter, and it's still August!

  5. Wonderful pictures! 'Dutch skies' I would call them, lots of those clouds over here as well.

    1. You are lucky to have skies like this Judy. I felt like doing a painting solely of clouds, they looked so good :)

    1. Yes, it was very relaxed too. There were lots of views along the toll road that I want to go back to photo and then paint :)

  7. I get that sudden mental debility too, when I can't remember the name of something I see every day. Ha... PYLONS, yes that's it! I know the feeling. Only too well.......
