Hemingway's Retreat- plein air with Paul Kenton

Yesterday , with a break in the weather, I seized the chance to go painting with Paul Kenton, we both shoehorned in a couple of hours into our daily schedule, and hooked up at a beautiful spot overlooking Woolacombe Bay. I painted this study in oils on a 12" x 5" wood panel , whilst Paul went big on a pre-stretched sheet of watercolour paper. It was a great exercise in working at speed, just capturing the essence of what was infront of us , without putting in too much detail.
