A funny day today, the weather was a bit miserable so decided not to go walking, I struggled my way through a very busy Keswick to the local supermarket, it's ages since I've seen it so busy with tourists, I couldn't make my mind about what to paint? what medium and if I was in the mood! So with the rain pounding on the conservatory where I work and the wood burner burning well I put some music on and felt more like painting. I decided on a small watercolour of Windermere with the 'langdales' in the background, I was working on hot pressed paper for a change and I choose three colours that I don't often use Opera Rose, Translucent Turquoise and cad lemon yellow, just three I do like to limit my colours. Well the sky went well ish, then I started painting some of the mountains in,THEN I took it to the sink, a well practised technique and under the water it all went, so after a quick dry off I went again, I couldn't believe how much Opera Rose I used compared to my favourite Permanent Rose, it was as thou the brush was eating it! So anyway to cut along story short, I'm not happy with my afternoon of painting and thought 'shall I put it on the blog or should I only put paintings that I'm really happy with, but No a blog should show, that us artists don't always produce what they want! So tomorrow I may go walking what ever the weather!
P.S I've suddenly got toothache, I think it's because I was concentrating so hard and clenching my teeth, oh the joys of painting.
