Weirwood – a painting a day

NFS as too pale   A4 watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

Today’s painting is the sketch I started on Bank Holiday Monday. It was a very fast picture of a changing sky and the landscape beneath it. Hats off to Turner and Constable,  because they really made this sort of view look easy to do. It is not easy to do. It was very pale and gappy , I have worked on it to improve that but still find its got some good parts and some weak bits.

It is not for sale as it is such an imperfect piece. From a long way off the sunbeams look OK but close to they look lumpy.

I spent today driving , No1 son to school, husband to station, Mother from London,No2 son to the uniform shop (exchange for larger size required) and the post office.

DIY Dad has installed a red flashing loo seat downstairs….have warned mother in case she gets a visual shock….let’s not think about the possibility real electric shocks to the undercarriage.
