Not everybody likes these big windmills but I do. I love the size of them and the swish through the air. This is an unremarkable little track on a grey and rain soaked day, I was on my way home from having birthday coffee with a friend when I saw these majestic towers in the mist. So, with my new found passion for plein air painting I stopped my van and did this.
I also had a chance to test out my new invention...plein air glasses! They are an old pair of glasses with the lenses coloured red with permanent marker pen, what they do, you see, is to make the tonal qualities of what you are looking at much more extreme. So I wear them to map out my painting, they work a treat, they look very odd but I don't mind about that!
