This past week has seen a beautiful spell of back to back sunny days with crisp light , the only thing is it's freezing! The warmth of the sun through the studio windows is misleading, that Winter siren at work again. Once outside the bitter NE blowing in from Scandinavia lets you know that we are still firmly in Winter's icy grip. I had to go out though, a few emails to the Devon 11 and two other hardy painters wrapped up and met me down on Barricane Beach for an afternoon's plein air fun.
Paul Kenton brought his pastel set-up down and Nigel Mason came equipped with his french easel and oils. I decided to take the watercolour kit.
By now, my down jackets had lost their battle with the winds icy attack and my flask of hot tea was drained, so it was time to head home.
A cold day, but still huge fun to be out doors painting with fellow artists, sharing a laugh and the joy of plein air painting.
You can see my finished watercolour "Glorious February" that was painted on the day over on my Fine Art website Steven A.Pleydell-Pearce Fine Art
Here's to warmer Spring days!
