Paul teaches in Leigh on a Wednesday so we tend to meet up once he has finished his class. It was hot and sunny today with little shade. From Leigh we went to Gunners Park, an old army garrison in Shoebury. Had to stand for one of the sketches which was pretty uncomfortable, so the paint ran!

Met Paul after his art class in Leigh on sea and did the sketch of the fishing boats and then we drove on to Shoeburyness to sketch the Poppy Wave. The flies were awful for some reason, the guides working at the installation suggested it was because a storm was brewing. Fortunately got home before the rain.
