Winter Sun on Exmouth Market

Winter Sun on Exmouth Market-by-Liza-Hirst

Wonderful sunshine again today, but a blasting cold wind as well. Luckily I found a wind sheltered spot to paint on this small street with lots of nice cafés, restaurants and shops near where I live.

Hi Liza,

This painting and post remind me of why I love winter. That end of day light is somehow more golden than at any other time of year. It's warm here today -- but supposed to get cold again tomorrow. Wonderful light and design. You are sooooo good.

Hi Barbara, how right you are - the sunlight is really golden at the moment and the red brick houses that you see so many of here seem to glow in it. But one has to hurry up painting it because the days are so short now. This was painted around midday, although it looks like early evening. Thank you so much for your support!

Great little gem Liza, ...
What kind of gear are you using?!

Looks pretty durn good, as it is. Especially for being huddled out of the cold wind to do it!

Thank you, René. I have a guerrilla box easel, which is great but doesn't hold a lot of equipment.

Thank you, A.Decker. For the time being, this was my last attempt to paint in the cold - I'm just not made for it.
