Yesterday was freezing but the rain had passed by so keeping a little promise I made to myself I packed the pochade and headed down the coast. I had to work quickly, as keeping the hands warm enough to hold the brush was something of a problem. I've got gloves that should do the job but once the finger ends seize up there's little control. You'll have guessed by now that I'm winding up the excuses for the failings of this week's effort. On the positive side I'm getting better control of the recession in these studies. The painting is not as finished as I would like, but it is what I completed at the scene. I'll probably make a few adjustments to call it finished, some blending and edge work could improve it.
