At last something of a break in the weather! After a seemingly endless period of rain, wind, and overcast, a brief interlude of milky sunlight brought some welcome relief despite a chilly north wind. And so I was once again up on my favorite viewpoint to try and catch the light on the cape while I had the chance. This series of ongoing sketches will eventually form a group comprising one painting for every day of the year. The best of these will appear alongside the larger paintings they inspire in a forthcoming exhibition now being planned.
