No, this was done here in Manila in the studio a few days ago, based on a quick sketch and some photos taken on the spot this summer.
Except for sketch pads and a tiny watercolour field-kit I don't keep any art materials over there because when I'm in France I never have the time or the peace of mind to do serious painting anyway.
Also, I'm too "greedy": I see inspiration wherever I turn, and if I sat down to paint one scene, I'd have no time to paint the others. So I prefer to make quick sketches of them all, take some notes and ref. photos...... and then I do the actual paintings when I'm back here, with a proper studio, all the art materials I need and, most important, with lots of uninterrupted time to paint!
Hey Pat! I know what you mean... I get like that when I go for walks around here. I get all excited about the clouds sometimes, or the sunrise/sunset. I try to capture it with a camera...impossible with sketches.
Anyway, your paintings are fresh and you seem to capture the feeling of the place.
Thank for sharing, as always.
So do you lounge under blue sky with a book in hand and a drink at your side I got spam mail from that company all the time, advertising new products and... would you believe it, that "thing"'s price now came down because summer is over. So if you want something for your weather there, ask me in winter
aiiiiiaaaaa! We bought too soon and paid too much! Blast it!
At the moment though there's no floating around on the lounger because even though the air temperature hasn't gone down too much yet, the water temperature sure has! 26 degrees C or thereabouts = freezing!!!!!! The only one courageous enough to go in is KK. And even he sais it's way too blooming cold!
