My first full day here and I feel totally relaxed and chilled out for the first time in ages.
I started off in the gym then had a swim then headed off out with my sketch book. The morning was spent looking around galleries and gift shops and sitting in the sun drinking coffee.
By the afternoon I headed along an old railway path down to the side of the river and sat there painting mini water colours using water from the river. The paintings were no good but they were the springboard to what I am working on now and it was just such a lovely experience.
I took some photographs too and here are my 3 favourites….I love close up photography where random objects become the focus for a change.
Tomorrow I hope to have finished some of the artwork I am working on…for now I am going to enjoy some more sunshine. 🙂
