The hottest day of the year so far and I have just spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the studio of Bob Brown NEAC. Set in beautiful rolling English countryside beside a very paintable river, Bob has the perfect studio. It was completely filled with an exhibition of his richly coloured landscapes.
Afterwards I spent an hour painting painting the nearby river, one of Englands most beautiful chalk streams. While I was painting a mayfly settled on my hand among the brushes.
