Seychelles









Havent posted on my blog for ages, but have just spent two glorious weeks in the Seychelles. Went there to celebrate my wife Joannas 40th birthday and it was the chill pill I needed. I was allowed to take my easel and did 25 paintings in total..two a day more or less. I had some great experiences and snorkelled on th reef with my son Tobias and swam with Turtles, sharks and sting rays. I also met The most famous artist on the Seychelles, Michael Adams and his daughter. I enjoyed their company and hospitality and hope to revisit one day. Below is a selection of my work from the trip
