This morning our plein air outing with PEDAS was at Bournemouth pier and gardens. The weather forecast was pretty bad but I had to go along having organised the outing. I didn’t see any other artists there so I settled down to do a quick painting and before I finished drawing.it rained so I sheltered for a while. The sun came out so I ventured out to add some paint but as soon as I had filled the water pot and set up my pallet it rained again, I tried to paint through it but it just got heavier so I gave up and came home! Sometimes the weather beats us although the rain on the painting created some interesting effects.
