Saturday I painted in a spot with all these mushrooms (amanita muscaria). The ones that make you taller and make you smaller.
I found the spot last time I was prowling round in the bird sancturary area on the dyke and came upon this little camp site that people seem to use. I set up my kit and chair in the mud.
Behind me the dyke looked like this.
And the sky looked like this
In front of me the earth looked like this.
There were bits of cardboard laid down like in a homeless camp.
These are the two little paintings I came home with. They still need more work as they don't look even as finished in real life as the do on the computer. I find the computer image good for this sometimes ..showing me what a painting needs.
I like them. They are focused in on, kind of funny, a little discovery.
