I was painting these for a gallery and thought I’d do a quick sketch first to sort out my yellows. It seems as though summer is here (not sure what happened to spring) so it’s, I hope, a taste of things to come bringing thoughts of eating seafood in the balmy sunshine by the sea somewhere. We had a fishy supper following the completion of said painting. I was a little nervous as the mussels had been in the studio all day but I managed not to kill anyone.
Enjoy the sunshine.
