Hastings in the rain

Our Mops visited Hastings and as soon as we arrived the rain storm began. One important lessons was learnt! Don’t paint with Oils water based on a rainy day! It was washed off again and again and finally I had something left to take home…

The calm after…

Oil’s evening was painting a small landscape with views we like.. we also had to show some emotion. I found a picture of this forest with a stream in the middle and few trees laying on the ground.. I called it ‘The Calm after the Storm’ . Hope you ar sitting down relaxing after a good day looking forward for a good weekend with a cup of coffee and no storms forecast… enjoy

Low Tide

The wind is blowing outside a northern cold air and everything is sitting still… There is not a soul out there, beside it is low tide and no one can go out to sea fishing today anyhow…

Ella Umbrella

Everyone knows the song of Rihana, Umbrella, yes the one with the ella ella umbrella. In the last few months all we get here is rain, rain plentyraina as the English would say, it’s rain cats and dogs. No doubt everywhere you go you can see that sea of umbrellas…

Monochrome

This week in our class we were painting a subject in Monochrome. Some painted iconic events or people…. I have decided to try to show the beginning of winter the first day of mixed rain, sleet and snow. I called my painting ‘The little girl with her Dog’
