Hatherop Estate, Sunday morning walk and more beginnings and studies

Annie, who owns, Just Maude in Cirencester, and I went for a long walk on Sunday morning. Here is her wonderful dog, Eddie looking very regal!

The sun came out very briefly.

A quickie pastel

Hatherop Estate First layer

I forgot to take a photo of this on Saturday. Looking at it now, it’s interesting to compare the photo with what I laid out. Quite depressing really… I have really ‘plumped’ up the composition! Now, the big decision is whether to ‘fix’ it or leave it.

I drove home today and took a couple more photos on the way. If the weather had been a little more inspiring I probably wouldn’t have got home until after dark. Driving across country is always more interesting than using the motorways.


More wanderings…

Hot soup was required after this morning, but I was back out driving around trying to find another amazing spot and I came across this beauty! Wow! I couldn’t believe my luck.. and what a gorgeous sunset to boot! I didn’t have time to lay out a painting, but started a quick oil pastel instead.
