In the morning we went painting the beautiful City Hall. It was quite a challenge as the light kept changing. I tried to catch the light reflections on the building during the rare minutes the sun showed up. Here is my first painting:
|Cardiff city Hall, winter morning oil on board 12"x10"|
|The inspiring building|
|My unfinished painting after an hour|
|Antony Bridge went for the biggest canvas, finished first, and achieved|
a beautiful result - what's his secret??
|No rain would stop Glynis Dray in the making of her masterpiece!|
|An that's me all wrapped up - always keeping my natural sense |
of fashion and elegance.... (cough)....
In the afternoon we headed to the gardens behind Cardiff Castle where I did my second painting:
|Bute Park, winter afternoon, Cardiff oil on board 12"x10"|
Again the light was changing all the time and it rained half the time but I decided to go for the sunny version.
As we were painting, it seems that a "paparazzi" caught snapshots of Antony and I from all angles!
Finally, after a comforting cup of tea some of us headed for a last quick painting at the Bay before heading home. There was the most beautiful sunset but we literally only had minutes to capture it.
Here is my last painting of the day:
|Cardiff Bay, winter sunset oil on board 10"x8"|
|The picture doesn't tell the whole story...|
|Andrew Taylor was facing the other direction |
and did a lovely marine sunset piece
|That's me starting the painting|
