|I decided to go for a small board to be able to work quickly and keep it spontaneous|
|I love my pochade box (guerilla) as it allows you to work on all sizes of boards|
|Tim King did a lovely painting of the same view next to me|
Tim and I then joined the rest of the group which was doing a painting of the beach so we decided to join in and tackle the same scene.

The painting below is the dunes at Carbis Bay. As we arrived we were walking towards the beach and the stroke of light between the dunes caught my eyes. David and Tim carried on walking to get to the beach but I decided to stop there and paint this. I had a really good time painting it (well, apart from the rain and my palette falling in the sand) but wasn't really happy with the result so I decided to start it again on the studio today based on my painting but trying to avoid making the same mistakes. Here it is:

|The original painting at the beginning of the session (just before my palette fell in the sand!)|
|David Pilgrim and Tim were doing a scene on the beach a few meters away|
I really felt inspired by that place and would have loved to stay there all day to paint those dunes but I suddenly felt really tired after it and went back to the car to have a quick nap instead. I really hope I can go back there again one day to do more paintings.
