Painting on Shingle Street
















This is the only painting I did this weekend, a watercolour of my friend Vicky on Shingle Street, a nearly empty secluded shingle beach on the Suffolk Coast. Other than painting, we spent a lot of time just being and staring out at the sky and the horizon, and watching a couple of elderly women brave the cold, strong currented water, to go swimming, in spite of the warnings. Braver than us!

















More photos from the trip can be seen on my flickr gallery.

Oh Tammy, this is such a neat painting! Sounds like a wonderful vacation.

I like your self control Tammy,
I would not be able to help myself & would try to capture each pebble.

So simple. Nice one.

Appologies for the use of the word 'Nice'

Thanks Sim, but it wasn't so much self control as laziness! Every single pebble? I'd never have the patience.

hey there tamsy, jealous of your lovely weekend! haven't figured out how to comment on the flickr page, so i shall tell you here - i heard that pebbles and shells which have holes going all the way through them bring you good luck...guess that, hence, you're a very lucky lady! looking forward to seeing you! have a good day
