Chinese Pagoda and Fountain in Viccy Park

I sketched outside yesterday - for the first time in a long time.  First the weather earlier this year was bad, then I experienced by second attack of this year's nasty bug and spent five weeks with an extremely bad cough which started on the least exertion.  Then it snowed - and was freezing cold for weeks and then I had a third attack of the nasty bug!

Plus I've mislaid my small Moleskine which does have some sketches of interior scenes on the few occasions I managed to get out.

Which is by way of explanation for why it's taken such a long time to post a new plein air sketch.

I met Olha Pryymak in the Park yesterday morning for a cup of tea and afterwards sketched this scene from one of the newly restored park benches.  It's unfinished but I'd got to the stage where I was getting chilly and tired and decided it was time to get myself home and into the warm.

You can see the very same fountain and lake  in some of Olha's paintings on her website and her Facebook page

  1. I've never been there ... but will have to.

    Hope you are feeling fully recovered!
