I spent the yesterday painting the snow at Harefield, Great Missenden and somewhere in the Chilterns (above) – warming up in the car as I travelled between locations.
The wet snow was mixing with the paint on my palette. Titanium white soon resembled ice cream and my brushes froze but it was a good day.
I will post some photos of the paintings later.
Exhibition preparations were put on hold yesterday because it snowed. I spent the whole day out painting instead of framing and labeling pictures. The painting above was one of five. It measures 16 x 20 inches and is in oil on board.
Last night I painted the wonderful German Christmas market on the Southbank in London. Here you can see a couple of small paintings on my easel.
The plan was to paint in Trafalgar Square at night after the rain.
The rain stopped for just long enough for me to set up and start painting. But, 25 minutes into the picture the rain became so heavy I had to pack up. You can see how far I got in the picture above.
