Watercolours in Easedale valley, Grasmere

1st day of 'Watercolours at Grasmere' and we found ourselves painting a misty Easedale Valley. We set out with a little mizzle and it turned into pretty wet drizzle, a bit tricky when you are painting outside in watercolours. The view looked lovely though, it lent itself to the watercolour medium, misty grey skies, silhouetted mountain ridges and a lonely farm house. I let out a cheer when I noticed the farmer had a fire going, this just helped the painting with a thin wisp of smoke to add even more atmosphere.
I love the way the fence dances into the picture

Michael dry and warm under the red brolly.

Does that mean you were forced to paint wet on wet???

Lovely scenery. Can't wait to see paintings
