13 April 2009 Easter Monday, Royal Pavilion Brighton
The weather forecast for the rest of the week is dismal, rain and gloom. So I changed my mind and went into central Brighton to try out the new pochade and tripod. It got busier as it got nearer lunchtime and the weather warmed up, and the grockles appeared by the busload. The lawns in front of the Pavilion were full of prams and picnics by the time I called it a day. The lone figure in this painting is drop out maths and music student Saul Blumberg. Thanks to Saul for his early interest and I include him to show the scale of the buildings.
