I hope everyone has been enjoying these first sunny days of spring here in England! It’s so nice to finally see the back of winter and have longer evenings and warm weekends of barbecues and beaches to look forward to.
We’ve been out and about making the most of the sunshine, but before I share some photos, here’s a miniature portrait of Bill Gates which I’ve been working on today. It’s for BBC One’s ‘Little Painting Challenge’ and will go alongside the Richard Branson drawing I did last week.
Ok, now for some nice sunny photos. We live 10 minutes from Westward Ho! and like to go down there any opportunity we get.
Sam went surfing while I went for a walk along the beach.
It was almost too warm for a coat! There was a kite surfing meet up going on, but no wind so all the kites were flapping around on the sand.
I found this intriguing piece of driftwood, which I did a quick sketch of. I thought it looked like Harry Potter’s wand!
We grabbed a coffee and sat on the seafront for a while, before buying a few picnic bits (pork pies and apples!) and heading over to Appledore. This photo is looking over at Instow with the tide going out.
After our picnic, we sat in the sunshine at a pub. The sun looked beautiful through the bubbles of my lemonade!
To update you on my 52 Faces challenge, this is number 10! Robin Williams was suggested by Jenny on Facebook as a tribute to a great actor, and from what I can gather, a lovely person.
Thank you for reading to the end, see you next week!
