Priscilla and painting kit
As you’re aware from a previous post a week or so ago, I’ve recently brought an ex-trade bike which I can use to get off of the beaten track when I’m painting en plain air on the Romney Marsh.
The bike,’ Priscilla” the new lady in my life, is perfect as I can carry all of my painting gear in the basket on the front or towed behind me in a small trailer.
What’s even better is that I can now get to places that I couldn’t in the car and I can now stop and paint at my leisure without worrying about parking on the winding country roads.
As such, I’m finding some wonderful Marsh scenes that I just couldn’t reach before and have been busily painting them when weather allows! These new paintings are currently drying but will be available to purchase shortly.

Strangely enough, I find I’m even covering less mileage on the bike than I was in the car, so another added bonus is a big saving on petrol. Happy days!
So, if you see myself and Priscilla on our travels stop and say hello!
