All weather painting equipment

Friars Crag, Derwentwater

Rain moving in High Brandlehow, Derwentwater

We've had pretty good weather for the course this week, yesterday morning was a little showery, but it was great watching the rain clouds move in over the mountains, and watching all the colours subdue perfect watercolour subjects but you have to be quick with the golfing brolly otherwise white tiny drops appear, where you don't want them!! But you can paint quite happily under a big brolly especially if it's not windy! I have known palettes, watercolour pads and hats been blown into the lake! Today the brolly was not needed and we sat at Friars Crag for quite a few very enjoyable hours painting away and listening to the coming and goings of the Lake, it's amazing what you hear and see. Tomorrow Ashness Bridge.
