Oil on board 10" x 12"
Here's a couple more paintings from way back in October that I painted on my second day at Paint Out Norwich. I've got some of these up at the moment at Milly's Deli in Leigh Road. I started my second day with a stroll down the river Wensom and the intention of not taking on too much as I'd been a bit pushed to get my painting completed in the three hours allowed on the first day.

After completing my river picture I wondered on a bit further and came across Abbots Bridge which I'd spotted a couple of days before and thought would make a great subject. I loved the way the light was catching the bridge at the time and the different textures of the stonework. The painter on the bridge was Tanya Pawsey who painted a lovely view looking down the river.

On the other side of Bishops Bridge was the Red Lion pub with pub and paddle canoes that Paint Out Norwich had organised for the event. I wondered over for a closer look decided to give it a go! I've never painted afloat before and the rather rough looking painting above was my effort for the afternoon. A great experience all the same but rather difficult to paint with the canoe drifting around! Here's my set up and a local on lookers.

The day ended with a climb up to the castle were Jerome Hunt and I had a go at painting the sunset which we just about manged before the castle security started to lock up the gates.
