Several of my trips this year took me down to Brighton, it's only 18 miles away from my home and as I don't drive it's not only easy to get to but also one of the most colourful resorts.
I love wandering along the Pier, it captures such a typical atmosphere of a traditional British seaside.
Ice cream, sticks of rock, candy floss, fun fair, deck chairs and much much more!
As a bit of fun I thought I would create a composition that would capture a little of the seaside spirit.
It's going to be slow progress and probably won't be finished until the New Year but it will definitely be fun to paint!
Work in progress ...... "Naps, Tatts and Doughnuts"

Christmas day has now passed and I've been busy painting between cooking lots of festive goodies .
It's taken longer than any other painting I have worked on but I have enjoyed every brush stroke.
So now finally I have finished my last painting of 2015 :)
