Harry and I braved the Cold and the wind and went plein air Thursday morning. I did an Oil sketch and Harry did a Pencil sketch. Isn`t that a lovely pencil Sketch of Harry`s? I do love the way he sketches. Mind you, he was a bit more sensible than me, he virtually had a tree shielding him from the wind, I didn`t.

London buses outside The Houses of Parliament. I have several photos that I have taken of scenes of london, but this painting was done from a photo I got from free photos on the web for artist`s, and other sites. I would have loved to have painted it on site, but i`m not brave enough to do that, especially at night.

This is a blogger friend`s back garden. He posted some photos of his garden showing a lovely robin watching him trim his trees. The garden was crying out to be painted. So I asked him if I could post in on my Blog, and he agreed. To tell you the truth, he loved the painting, honest. it pleased me no end.

Barges India. I painted these Barges from a loose Leaf in a Book that I have all about Thames Barges ect`. There is no write up of them, no info` at all. It looks as if they are in India, I`m just guessing, sorry. I have had permission to paint from this book in writing, so I am okay on that point.

As promised I have managed to upload these pictures of my studio with the extention but not completed. I have yet to fix some shelves up in the new area. Please don`t take any notice of the untidyness of my studio.

Another quickie. Yesterday afternoon painting. Thoroughly enjoyed painting this one. Sky painted first, then whilst it was still wet, I painted the Horse and rider, no preliminary drawing just straight in with the painting, then the trees. by the time I went back to do this and that, it took me an hour from start to finish. I`m never proud of doing a painting so quick or so long, it`s what I ever fancy doing at the start. I mention the time factor because that is the sort of information that I always like from other Artist`s. 8x8" on Stretched Canvas.

Here it is. My new Studio extention. It is amazing how much more room it has given me. I`m no good a sign writing, but this will do. Painting coming up soon.
