This is a first! I am blogging from Madeira on an ipad.
Today I have been to the gardens of Reids Palace Hotel to do some painting in the beautiful garden. It is sunny but also very windy. I started by doing a sketch and may make a painting of it. I got cold so moved to another spot and started something else, a view through some interesting foliage with a
glimpse of the sea and Funchal beyond and I am part way through the painting. The leaves that I have started painting are those of the giant bird of paradise, Strelitzia nicolai.
