Went in-line skating on the seafront at Troon last night. Was the first time I’ve skated outdoors, and was a load of fun.
Didn’t get any weird looks as in “You’re too old to be doing that”, which was good. I also didn’t go arse over tit, which was excellent. Definately need to get out on the skates more. It’s great excercise, and a lot of fun.
Second attempt with watercolours. There’s a bit of it I’m not happy with, but other than that, considering it’s only a second time doing a painting, I’m pretty much happy with it.
It’s based on a photo I took on Troon beach on a less than sunny day
I’ve decided to have a go at doing another painting. There’s a pic I took of the sky over Troon beach – it’s about 4 posts down (Awesome Sky) – and it’s been calling me to, well, just have a go. So in the spirit of “it doesn’t matter if it’s crap, it’s the doing that’s the enjoyment, the result is a bonus”, I’m off at lunchtime to get an enlargement to use as a guide.
Hoping to have a go this weekend. Pics will be posted (depending on the resultant mess!)
