Completed painting....

From my previous blogpost, Work-in-Progress - I completed this actually working on it plein air.

We went down to Cornwall and I had the great opportunity to paint the view across to Godrevy Lighthouse - https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/godrevy - been wanting to do this painting for ages, how could I miss this chance when the weather was on our side (if only briefly).  We ended up having horrendous storms coming in, but I relish in the fact I was able to do this painting whilst the sun shone.

and here's a photo of me painting it....


I think William wanted to be in the painting, but I refused to add him 🤣

I had on two warm jumpers under that coat and I was still cold!!! ❄️

Beautiful painting, Ann! Ohoh William!

That is a beautiful painting Ann. We had that same awful weather here in north Wales, strong winds, heavy rain and bitterly cold. William makes me laugh as he poses for you. Methinks you'll have to do a painting using that photo....to keep William and his fan club happy :)

Judy......Thanks, I enjoyed doing this, but not so much in the cold, lol. I got to do a "basic" few outlines that day. (actually then went back to our accommodation and photographed it....then we went back another day and I completed the painting) and ALL that between the storms that came in. Think one was called Storm Brendan, it was really bad!

Eileen...Yes, wasn't the weather awful! We had chosen that week to go away down to Cornwall, but fortunately still had a good time and got out and about. Surprisingly the weather did come out lovely when it did decide to co-operate 🤣

Brava! Not only for the painting but for braving the cold to do it plein air! :D ("You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!")

Robin......Thanks, glad I braved it ☀️❄️❄️❄️🤣

Marie....thankful about no snow. There has been a smattering high up on Dartmoor, but soon melted. 🙂
