Today's efforts...This is Featherbed Rock on Vane Tempest Beach. I was supposed to do a small sample, but went straight ahead and painted it 24x24. It's about half-way there.
These are too big for my art blog so they'll end up on my website when finished.
We just nipped out about an hour ago for a treat (Chinese takeaway) and got caught in a truly violent storm...thunder claps and all... it was tremendous and we were drenched as we ran into Blockbusters to pick a film for the night. We enjoyed Liam Neesom in Taken, so we picked another of his films just as the ceiling collapsed behind the counter.
We stood with dropped jaws at the torrent of water gushing from above and drenching the staff and stock. It was the most incredible scene and proved most entertaining. There was more water falling than the waterfall in the above painting. Of course, they couldn't operate the till so we eventually left empty handed as they emptied the store of customers and locked the door behind us.
The storm has now passed and the sun is shining.
That was an experience and a half and was one of those times that I wish I had my camera with me because I can't believe what just happened as I now look out of the window.
