Had fun painting this egg for the Chapelton Easter Egg Hunt @chapeltonlife The paintings are being auctioned for funds for new sensory bus for @grampianautisticsociety , such a great local charity. The painting is ‘flying home’...seagulls now allowed to travel as restrictions are lifted 😀 ...

Seagulls were the backing band and sometimes the lead singers in this morning’s dawn chorus, so experimenting with adding them as an element to today’s painting. I do like to watch them soar.

Out enjoying the light today. Definitely feels like seasons are changing. VERY slow walk run to the edge, shoes off and taking a breath. North Sea like a pond today. Love foghorns, think it’s a childhood memory thing. Looks like the foghorn and me are listening to the sea, it has much to say.

Feels good to have painting time today after a few days of doing different things. Worked on this one and I think it’s almost there. Will go back to it in a couple of days to see if it needs any final tweaks.

Listening to the gusts of wind rattling the windows has influenced my painting energy. Must be a pretty rough North Sea today.

What do you think, stay ‘in the pink’ or use it for underpainting? Just looked out the window and sky is pink here tonight. It’s a sign! Another small canvas experiment.
