The March winds are stirring up the snow and making it feel soso cold! Friends of hours were stuck for 12 hours on a local road last night.
How can this be spring in Sussex? I am sure this time last year I was sunning myself in the garden...

Now a jolly and very child-friendly mini department store. They also sell a mean chocolate brownie in their little cafe at the back of the shop...
Not sure who should go upstairs, but I want the window to be a rainbow of colour and inquisitive children...

The first wash I play with layers of paynes grey, ultramarine and purple, with little touches of ochre here and there. overlaying with a flat brush some bricks are easy to pick out to give the impression of the shiny black mathematical tiles, which Lewes is famous for.Then when I put the first reds and oranges on the colours really contrast, the colours are so exciting together...especially when the paint is still wet and transparent like glass.
|Glowing amber bricks|
|all the base colours are on|
so, that is the end of the easy bit...the definate colours are on. the rest I have to decide on...colours in windows and peoples clothes. It doesn't look much to be painted - but it will take me another couple of days to finish! watch this space...
