This was fun. Someone has taken away another one of the poles at the entrance to the Pipe Beach so I didn’t feel like painting the usual scene. Also I had some reading to do so I decided to paint some of the people.

And that was that.
I am going to have to plough much of my time into my studies for the next while but want to get in some painting, for balance (or at least the illusion of a balance).
