I got to the Cathedral green in the afternoon as I wanted to check out the Christmas markets lights but it was a tricky place to set up my rig, in the end i loved the look of the shop Orvis which had its lights on, the tea on the green and Martins lane in the background which made some interesting light and dark abstract shapes.
I had been painting for about 30 mins when it started pouring down, I tilted my panel forward so it didn't get so wet which can help, a little rain is fine, I really like all those reflections! but it kept coming down, and in the end I couldn't get the paint to stick on my panel anymore, or though it does create some interesting effects with the paint, But I had to give it up for now, and went home early.
The next day I got there at about 3 pm, it was a similar light, so I set to work, I wanted to leave in as much of the rainy effects as I could, but did have to change a few things
It was getting darker and darker and the lights were getting lighter and brighter so I went with it and was pleased I did, its not usually something I would do.
When I came too, I realized what the time was, 4 30!!? I had to pick up my little boy from after school club at 5 30! so I had a sprint to the train station and was in luck, a train in 10 mins!
