Across a toll road to the beach

The other day we had a nice walk next to the estuary, along a toll road (very cheap £2, well worth it) and down another road past fields.  Thought I would share some of the photos I took on my iPhone for you.....

the sheep in this next photo haven't actually escaped their field.  The whole area of the toll road is farmland too, so the sheep graze their way along it.

If anyone would like to use any of the photos in this post for drawing, painting, sketching, please go ahead and use them.

Ipad stand

A fellow artist happened to add photos of her iPad Stand on Facebook.  Since I have gone to great lengths in the past, to try and set up my iPad (and iPhone) to record videos, I was obviously going to ask her about it.

Turns out it's a good way to record videos, so I went ahead and ordered one.  Here it is on my workspace

I'm very hopeful this will do what I hope it will -
there's plenty of room for me to work without the iPad/iphone blocking my view of what I'm trying to paint.

The only thing to do now is to try recording a video.  

(here's just a little 'tester', I'm removing masking tape, riveting stuff I know, but I have to start somewhere - for some reason my hands are flapping about to begin with, sorry about that!)

(many thanks to Judy Coleman for her advice
about this iPad/iphone Stand).

a slight blip earlier on my blog...

apologies if anyone saw my blogpost earlier about '3rd party hosting'...this was something that cropped up on my blog and left me somewhat confused.  I have since worked out what the problem was and so am now a happy blogger again.
