Painting Promentary

 Back in Ferrybridge Cottages, Wyke Regis for a few days. Yesterday we walked over to Portland , up the Merchants Incline and went for lunch at the Jailhouse Cafe in HMP Verne . Lovely food, excellent coffee and a very worthwhile venture training inmates for the catering trade. Worthy of the great ratings it has on Trip Advisor.

Today I wanted to try a painting experiment suggested by Susan Gray when I was at Slapton of pianting directly on primed canvas, the advantage being can just roll up the canvas and put it in your bag! I headed round the corner from the cottages on to the end of  where the railway line once was  and I had a fine time splashing paint around , with the occasional dog ( and their owners ) coming to investigate. Could only do it for just over an hour before the kneeling posture got too much.   The trellis in the backyard   proved a useful drying station while we walked into Weymouth along the Rodwell trail. Will do some more work on it on Friday morning, tomorrow it's Tout Quarry Sculpture Park.
