Another view in the Greyabbey courtyard.
This painting was actually done from photos taken in the Coldswolds, but both England and Ireland are full of tea rooms and quaint buildings.My daughter says we are always on a "food fest" and it's true. We just have to try all the "tray bits" and pastries.
Well, I won't attempt to spell the little coastal town in Northern Ireland that the above lighthouse is in, but my daughter and I took a painting workshop there with Graham Boothe and we really enjoyed painting there "plein aire". It was rather cold and we ended up in the car painting! She had the front seat and I spread out in the back. Later, we took a break at another tea room and had some delicious soup and wheaten bread.
