back outside...

Villars (oil on wood 30cm x 30cm) David Atkinson

The weather is getting better, so I am getting outside to paint more.   This painting took an hour or so, working on an earth red ground.  Good fun, helped by the fact that I was sitting next to cafe and so had a ready supply of expresso.  The owner(s) of the house (there seemed to be at least three)  came across a few times to check on progress...


  1. Nice one Degas,I mean David.(it,s the beard)

  2. I'm hoping the beard helps me paint better. If not, it's coming off!
