Challenges and paintings from April to July 2015

 A challenge from Paint and Draw in April.

 A challenge from Paint and Draw in May.

I joined a group doing en plein aire  paintings, but unfortunately there were more days in than out, Wednesdays didn't have much luck so most of the course was choosing pictures to work from indoors.

 Coastguard cottages at the mouth of the Cuckmere

 This was one of the few out of doors pictures, Marstakes common in Sussex.

 Another painting using a reference. The bridge Pont du Gard in Provence.

The second time we went out, painting with a little extra (the rib) at Newhaven, Sussex.

 Third exercise outside,The old Forge at Glynde ,Sussex.

 The next two references not outside, the Creek at Leigh on Sea, Essex

 The Creek at Leigh on Sea with Southend Pier in the distance.

The pineapple has continued to grow, but I'm not sure it will get much larger now.
