Month of Posts - Winter Edition - Days 18 & 19
I wrote that early on Saturday morning, before spending several hours on the painting. It's looking a lot better now and is making me feel less nervous! I go through funny phases with commissioned paintings, particularly near the beginning when they look rubbish and I feel that I've never going to be able to make them work.
Sunday was such a surprising morning with a frost, a beautiful dusting of snow and my favourite pastel-coloured skies. Our bedroom is North facing (as is the studio), the North is absolutely my favourite for sky-watching, you see the most stunning subtle colours in the North, particularly at dawn and dusk.
The boys didn't stay out in the crust of snow for long, James seemed poorly and Ol didn't want to stay out on his own. They spent the afternoon building dens while I worked.
