Both these paintings are a full page of my medium sized Fabriano block sketch pad. They are not entirely to my satisfaction. The first uses artificial light and the second the fading natural light of this afternoon. I think I could almost do a Hockney cut and paste, adding the parts I like from one image to the other image. Well I could except it was the two tulips to the left that went off in each case. Tulips are swines for moving by the way; in a half hour period leaves curled and twisted away from their starting positions.

The snow has not all melted and today I met a man cross country skiing on the South Downs. It was beautiful but very cold up there. In Ditchling village the pub window boxes are still showing blue in the flowers ( now freezedried) of the summer lobelia. In the last half hour fresh snow started falling.
