Had a nice paint out today with John Crump and his grandson Sam. The weather was not the best - mostly grey and cold but by inventing a little light in the foreground of my painting I was able to use the moody landscape to my advantage. Having nearly finished the painting we were greeted by 5 women on horseback who'd snuck up ever so quietly to have a look at the paintings (amazing how you can zone out when you're in the middle of a painting). As they rode off I dabbed a couple of them into the painting. So nice when you're provided with bonus content on the spot - you don't get that so much with photographing a spot because you don't get to stand there for so long.
