Day 17 of the 30 paintings in 30 days - Simple as - 6 x 6 Inches - Gouache

Day 17.

I was away on Puddleduck last week as we had no signal on the phone we could not use the computer.

I decided to have a rest instead. We should have been painting the boat but it rained at some point every day.

The temperature and weather play a big part in painting a boat. Still there is always next year. Exciting moment, I saw a quick flash of turquoise it was a kingfisher, it didn't want to pose for me though. Another evening I was cooking dinner and there was a tap on the window, I turned around and there were 3 teenage swans waiting for duck nuts.

When the sun came out it was glorious, we never had to light the fire all week.

Today I have been to a friends painting what a lovely day, Babs does not need a boat,she just walks to the bottom of her garden and there is the River Ouse.

This painting is me trying to be a bit abstract and called "Simple as", I wish.
