On Sunday it was time again for a trip to the wadden sea and the beautiful island of Norderoogsand. This time I wanted to pain plein air. I was really excited to start because I had only 90 minutes to complete my painting or at least get a start on this. I was standing with my feet in the warm water of a nearby tide-way, life was great. This is what I call living in the moment. No matter what the end result.

Wel,l the end result was somehow not what I had imagined. I was totally absorbed my surroundings that I had totally forgotten to put sun blocker on my feet.

Now I have a painful, but beautiful sunburn on my left foot. Quite nice shade of red.

At least I got the under painting and can finished the painting in my studio.

    Wie kann man das verstehen? Untermalung auf dem Fuß?
    Viele Grüße aus dem heißen Südtirol.

    Das Rot hätte im Bild auch nur gestört :-)

    Liebe Grüße aus Rostock.

    Wonderful, Wonderful!!! I agree …… that is what I call living! in the moment!! I see you have the Strada mini …… I am wanting to figure out a way to adapt it for pastels (either the mini or the regular size) …… have to rig up an insert with memory foam. Beautiful start on your painting, Astrid!

      I would probably recommend the regular size,because otherwise it will be too small. But bare in mind that with the pastels it’s going to be heavy!
