A welcome trip out with the other founder member of the Reformed Reprobates Painting Society to North Shields Fish Quay. After bacon buttie breakfast we headed onto the quay where I chose this view to paint. Actually there was a lot more in front of me than appears here, but I am trying to edit and simplify as I paint. One of my many faults is trying to get too much in a scene and destroying the immediacy of the piece by overworking. I haven't been too successful here but it's another lesson learned.
Otherwise a good day out and an evening listening to wonderful Irish music with another of our pals who we are determined to recruit to our little painting team.
