I am taking a break from my usual stomping ground and have migrated north for a spot of companion painting with northland artist, Richard Robinson. He is great company and makes a mean tuna sandwich to boot.
We painted a shed scene alongside a rather busy road( logging trucks well outnumbered any other vehicle) . It was windy, the sun came and went and it rained , but as usual, Richard painted superbly . I painted like a chimp. C'est la vie. I revived this Afternoon and painted a beach scene from Waipu cove. Still windy, but I took more time and stopped often to step back. More hominid than chimp. Depending in the clouds, I may or may not paint this evening.
