...the group of artists I paint with have been doing the rounds of each others gardens through the summer, and a couple of days ago it was my turn. It's been sunny for weeks, but of course it drizzled on my day, so everyone was inside painting bowls of fruit or baskets of veg and other nic nacs. I decided that I would take my next free sunny day and go around the garden timing myself with a buzzer and painting quick subjects, and today was the day. These are the paintings that I managed to get done. Most are A5 and done in 10 mins, there's a couple of A4's that took 30 /45 minsmainly watercolours with a bit of inktense pencils and neo colour II pastel. Was so much fun L wanna do it again :-D ....

thanks all for visiting, I did enjoy this challenge, makes a nice change to planting yourself in one spot and getting yer head down for several hours. I plan to get a couple more days like this in before the warm days end :D
