Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, and not having many days left sunny or otherwise, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity. I headed down to the seaside and plopped myself down in front of a Hastings classic: the net house.
Used to hang and repair fishermen’s nets, these are iconic to the people of this town. They’ve even built a row of new condos done in the same dark brown boarding to match (though these look far less weathered).
I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. I tend to get antsy if I sit for too long so it can be hard to get what I would call a finished piece, but this time I plugged into my most recent audio book (A Brief History of Seven Killings) and spent a good hour and a half.
Fairly pleased with the result – might be my best one yet.
I’m hoping to get down to the seafront again soon, but today was gale-force windy and tomorrow is supposed to be freezing so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.
In other news, a very happy birthday to the Queen who is 90 years old today!
