Triumph Motorcycles Street Twin Bonneville Review by Pinky Doodly

Here is a quick review of the brand new Triumph Motorcycles Street Twin 2016 Bonneville by my MotoVlogger daughter @PinkyDoodly from a ladies point of view. The bike was from the award winning Staffordshire Triumph Dealership. A new modern take on the classic British motorcycle.

Winsor & Newton Artist oils a bit too oily today

This Vlog is a question to Winsor & Newton in regards of their artist oils range of wonderful paints.

Yesterday I painted the left arm of Michael Dunlop’s leathers on my oil painting of him fro the 2014 Isle of Man TT on which he made history for BMW by winning for them for the first time in 75 years at the world famous TT races.

I used Cobalt Blue along with Ultramarine and a few other colours and I work alla prima most of the time to get the detail I require but when I came to put more Cobalt blue paint on my pallete to do Michael’s right boot a lot of oil came out and not the ‘cream cheese’ I am used to painting with. This also has happened with Winsor Lemon and my Ivory Black. This very oily paint stopped me from doing the detail that I normally achieve with your excellent paints.

I can’t think that this is normal so I am looking forward to Winsor & Newton letting me know why this is happening and if it will stop or if I have some dud paint.



Scottish Indedendence and the Cost of Post?…

Just a quick thought Vlog on what will happen to the cost of post if Scotland votes for Independence.

I currently can post a large Letter to Northern Ireland and it costs £1:20 and if it goes to Sourthern Ireland it costs £3:70 as it is not part of the UK and classed as a foreign country. Will this happen to Scotland and the post? Will a CN22 customs form be needed as they will not be able to join the EU straight away either? Just a thought from someone who posts prints to Scotland for my work.
