It was lovely to spend a few days away with my painting group The Plein Air Girls ..The weather was perfect , the company splendid ...the food and wine to die for ! In spite of this we had a very productive time and I managed to get 2-3 plein air paintings done each day ...not masterpieces ..but just had good fun trying to capture the scenery before it changed . What a great little group we have become ! It is such a pleasure to spend time with these ladies several times a year . Look out for a featured article about us in (maybe) the next Australian Artist Magazine .
There is nothing like a painting trip with the 'Girls' to get me all enthused and inspired to paint so I was straight into this painting above on my return ..I am very pleased with the outcome of " Rockpool ' painted from a photo of my sweet little grandaughter playing at the beach a couple of months ago .
