Watercolor painting in the Lake District

Our 1st painting location for August watercolours in Keswick and around Derwentwater, we were greeted by 'Mizzle' and 'Midges' for those who don't know what mizzle is it's soften and finer than Drizzle, not bad for keeping your watercolour damp and working wet in wet! Luckily the midges didn't bite. Even though the sunshine didn't show it's face till later in the afternoon
it was still a pleasure to work outside. Low grey heavy clouds, misty mountains and long reflections perfect for capturing in watercolours.

My wonderful, Lilac brolly got an outing today, will it be out tomorrow, fingers crossed for the sunglasses and sunhat!! It is August
