Necessary Watercolour equipment for painting in the Lake District.

I've found the perfect umbrella for outdoor painting, it does look like a 70s icon but it's fantastic. I bought it off Keswick market for £2.50 a bargain not sure how long it will last, I will keep you posted!! It's been quite a week of weather up here in Cumbria, but we have managed to get out and do quite a lot of varied painting. The waterfall yesterday was spectacular at Rydal.

This is the view from the room we use to paint in at the Glenthorne, note the rain coming heavily down

Oh by the way my blog is 1 year old on Monday I will have to think of something special

Gosh, I bet that umbrella will get a work out Jane. Your trip to Italy looked like it was a successful one (apart from the truck!). I remember visiting Rydal falls during my time in Keswick. It didn't quite look as impressive as this though. Happy Blogaversary too. Kathryn.
