#PaintSeptember 3

My preference is to paint from life, but on occasion you see something that really inspires you and stopping and painting is not an option, due to time, space or companions

The subject I have chosen for my third painting for #paint September is from a photograph taken in February of a Brocante in the Jewish quarter in Essaouira Morocco. I do intend painting this subject in oils at some point, but Ink and watercolour will do for now…..


Sitting in the gallery, in the late summer heat drinking peppermint tea (sans sucre) I could be back there amongst the bustle and friendliness of the people of Essaouira.

My plan is to go back and paint there in March next year and then take a group of students in October, funny how you can fall in love with a place.
