On Friday evening I went to Bedford to paint a 2 hour acrylic demo for the Bedford Art Society. They had asked for a demo which included lots of figures, so as we are in the middle of a warm spell, I thought a beach scene would be nice, so this is what I painted for them. Its on canvas and is 16 x 20 inches
It has been the most wonderful week end for sunshine, the village has been packed with visitors, picnicking and enjoying the river Windrush. Children with their fishing nets hoping to catch tiddlers are wonderful subjects to sketch, often the people I sketch in the village are the ones I add in my beach scenes, its easy to sit with a pad and pencil and watch the world go by.
