Things I have been doing....

Friday was a beautiful day and we went out to a park in London to do some painting. I have started my painting classes again. I am a bit rusty so I was struggling a quite a bit. This is supposed to be a tree and some plants lol!
This is the park we were in and you can see from the shade how sunny it was.
Today we went on a drive and ended up in Tetbury. This building was an old Toll house..There was some sort of local artists exhibition going on in there. Didn't stay around too long as it was freezing and windy.
Below is the spire of the church in Tetbury which I took from the car as we approached the town.
Most of my Bank holiday went in gardening. Hopefully I shall have some flowers to show you when they start blooming.


  1. not supposed to be a tree, it is a tree! :D really like how the texture on the limb looks

    looks like a good day :D

  2. Nice beginning on the tree,I am glad you had a nice sunny day for it. Lovely buildings!

  3. I think your painting turned out really well. I love the technique you used.

  4. Lovely photos!
    And your tree is going very well! Very nice!

  5. I think your tree looks great too...lovely greens and nice texture.

  6. I'm glad you're painting again Shashi. Your tree is beautiful and I loved your other photos, too. I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your yard when the flowers begin to bloom.

  7. I'm so glad you are continuing with your painting. You have such a talent with that.

    Looks like spring has arrived in England- look at all those green trees in your photos.

  8. I love the way you paint Shashi...keep going!
