Eccentric Behaviour

I've been back outside, painting on Winfrith Heath this week.

I will write in more detail about this over the next few days. My initial thoughts however were about how exposed my particular position was to the wind and sun. Sometimes though you just have to do this – to be in the right place.

On my first day working on the painting I was discovered by a dog snuffling around in the grass, which began to bark. It's owner approached and asked what I was doing.

I replied 'Painting'.

He said 'Oh yes, my dog will bark at eccentric behaviour'.

looks like you had better weather there than we did in Scarborough. Bloody torrential!

It is so exposed on the Heath that I would have got sunstroke & burnt if it wasn't for my hat & sun cream.
I can imagine Scarborough in the rain though having its own beauty :)
