It has been a very enjoyable time at Galgorm Castle during this year's Northern Ireland Open presented by Modest! Golf & Ulster Bank. I spent the week painting a variety of acrylic sketches on canvas. It was quite a changeable week in terms of weather and I got caught with wet paint and runny graphite at various times, messy. Still, I am pleased with the results and following the tournament I'll start to paint the final view of the 18th on Sunday with the eventual winner prominent. As I write this I'm looking out of the Media Centre and seeing brighter skies. Time to sign off and get on with the final sketch down by the 18th. I'll post the result later.
5th - wednesday morning
