Harry and I went over to Kelsey Park again on Monday. We both did the same subject, Harry in Acrylic, and me in oils. Iv`e shown my plein air sketch, also in my Pochade. Normaly I don`t show my sketches, but this time I think it is better to show both the sketch and the painting from the sketch for which I haven`t done yet. Also i have shown the cafe that is in the park. You can get a decent meal in there. Although the Park is a fantastic well looked after park, the Toilets are not.

Harry and I at Kelsey Park. At last a lovely day. We spent a couple of hours in this park and it was a fantastic. couple of hours. Ducks, Swans and Canada Geese. and people coming up to us asking this and that. One lady with a little girl asked me if she could show the little girl the painting. I said sure but it isn`t completed yet, but she was pointing out things on the painting and explaining what it was. I said she`s probably not interested in the painting, but the lady said she is, and she will explain everything to her mum when she gets home.

Cottages at Otford. The club and I went over to a Village called Otford. A Beautiful place. We all started to paint almost the same subject, these Cottages. After about an hour it was getting a bit cold so we all went to have a nice cup of tea or coffee. After that we all went to different subjects. I did a bit of sketching, others did some more painting. After Lunch in the same place, we all parted company. When I say our club, I mean six of us. After about three Hours and some great discussion in the coffee shop, we all parted company. I as usual completed this subject at Home.
