Wet Saturday

Factory study in the rain

Another plein air study in Malaga (an industrial area near Perth, Western Australia not the one in Spain). Mid winter here, not too cold, but drizzling rain and windy.

Painting in such conditions is a little more athletic than normal because it’s necessary to hold onto the easel at all times. Let go and it will probably fall over. Cleaning or changing brushes – the spare brushes are in my bag, the turp pot next to it – are on the ground at my feet. You will need to imagine the contortions.
