I do like that tripod a whole lot. It is soooooo light!

I started to sketch the Forceful, just to get the feel of it, as I wanted to paint it too.

Then the rains came. John was protected under his umbrella, so he opted to stay, we made a mad dash for cover. We found a bar, and asked if we bought a drink, could we sit and paint. They were most happy to oblige.

Simon is so proud of his painting, the first he has done since a child. He is a digital artist.
