I had a lovely day today painting on the 1st day of 'Spring Watercolours' we had fantastic painting weather sunny skies, no wind and soft muted colours. Base camp was beside the Lake at Portinscale painting the old wooden posts, it's a lovely spot with the stream trickling by and for company two Coots or maybe they were Moor Hen's! Ducks and Canadian Geese. Painting on stretched Fabriano Not paper and using a limited palette of Cobalt blue, Yellow ochre, Burnt Sienna and my new favourite Opera Rose, it is a real girlie pink!
