Painting in the time of COVID-19

Well, 2020 has been a year like no other!  Lockdown was an unpleasant experience as I was unable to see friends and family.  And, of course, I missed the chance to paint with friends.  One regular event that normally runs from spring – autumn are weekly painting days with the Wapping Group of Artists.  But, unable to physically meet to paint together, we reverted to a virtual paint each week.  A venue was chosen and information from photographs taken on previous visits and/or sketchbook drawings completed at the site were used to help our work.  This method presented some challenges and is certainly not the best way to paint as we are primarily a plein air group.  However, circumstances dictated this was all we could do and some interesting work was completed.  For a selection please see our Facebook page:

With the easing of restrictions we are now back again, meeting weekly at a venue of our choice. Regular updates are posted on my Instagram page:
