How to make a Landscape painting Special

With grey skies and heavy downpours, this was not the weather I had envisaged  for a Outdoor watercolour weekend. With Umbrellas at the ready and waterproof jackets on, nothing was going to disturb hours of joy spent painting on the shores of Derwentwater. I'm delighted to share the joy of 'Outdoor painting with other Artists, appreciating stunning scenery, been amongst wildlife and above all watching the weather approach. All of this while, you try to put  paint to paper and create something special. And it is always special. It may not be a masterpiece, but to spend a few hours looking at one view will always be remembered on that piece of paper. Certain memories come back when painting in the studio and those are the special ingredients for what makes a 'painting'
