Our backyard dam is only half full, and we know that rain is coming next week.
It will make a difference, as we use the water for our garden.
I painted this in the midday sun, with only a few bites from ants..
no sign of the death adder that crossed my path last month.
It disappeared down towards this dam, so it's here somewhere!
This is a 'Plein Air' painting,
acrylic on canvas,
18 x 14", 356 x 457mm

At a little cove called Easts Beach, Kiama, south of Sydney.
I was painting while perched on the rocks, but had to move back as the tide came in.
We were staying in our motorhome at a 'holiday park' nearby. (BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park)
Very quiet and peaceful in the spring.
Watercolour and acrylic white on Saunders paper.
610mm x 457mm (24" x 18")

"China Town Business"
A small store in the China Town quarter in Singapore
"Clock Tower by the Shops"
Rothamburg: a 'plain air' under difficult circumstances. I had left my water container behind, and had to flood one half of the palette from a water bottle. A messy sketch, but a good memory of a very cute German town.
Bamburg was a surprise: just a modern shopping spot, I thought, until we turned a corner and discovered a medieval town built on a confluence of waterways.
"The Canal of Gold"
And wonderful Amsterdam: just a quick water tour of the canals, before we were bussed away to our ship in Utrecht. I was sad that I had no time here to catch up with Ella Arps, from The Arps Gallery. Next time!!

A powerful bunched sprint! I wonder if anyone has done the calculations for horsepower?
Greipel is in red, waiting his chance to break free!

Four of the best: Porte in black, Quintana in white, Froome (hidden) and Nibali in blue. These riders are so strong to ride the crazy high Alps, and they lived to tell the tale!
