Sometimes I think to myself - what shall I paint?
Nothing springs instantly to mind, so I browse my photo library.
I am sure everyone who paints has a stack of photos on the computer all waiting to see the light of day as a painting!
I came across some holiday pictures from two years ago - when we went to Battle, near Hastings.We stayed in a converted oast house - and it was wonderful :)
Amongst the many pictures, I found one of the doorway of the oast house, with the wisteria out around it. How jolly romantic .
Not so romantic was the recycle bin next to it, so I've changed that in my painting to a flower pot. I've also left out a load of trees in the distance. Artistic licence !
Here's the first stage
The day off that wasn't
