My pochade box did pass the test and was just perfect. Lovin' it!
As I was finishing the painting, talented painter Bo Hilton - which I recently met at his new gallery Hilton Fine Arts - came to say hello. He made a few comments on my work and as he didn't have the time to do a full painting himself I invited him to do just a few brushstrokes on mine to see what he would improve - it was only a couple of brushstrokes but still a very interesting experience.

As I was painting I thought a couple of time that this was a typical "Peter Brown" painting spot so it was a funny coincidence we bumped into him as we were about to leave. Obviously a hot spot for painters! I'll certainly be back...
