We were down at Seaton Carew last week. There were some people, probably gypsies or tinkers, taking their horses for some exercise in the sea. One bloke was simply exercising his horse and trap. He led it into the sea and other, more nervous horses followed it.
I have a fascination with Seaton Carew Beach and have photographed it and painted it...
BIG PROBLEM is ...What do you do when your ceiling is too low for your easel? Do you really cut a bit off the top. I paint happily on the table-top easel but I have looked forward to this stand up easel so much and so I'm a bit disappointed that it can't be raised to my standing level. As you can see it is not able to be raised any further. The rest of the house has higher ceilings but the rooms are already designated for other uses...bed, bath,TV etc.
I bought a great, big cheap canvas at Lidl for £5 and the easel off Amazon for £60 so the easel is more important than the canvas.
Cheers for now and hope you all have some good ideas.
