The joy of walking down to Derwentwater with the camera is that I never quite know what will inspire me. Today these little stripped characters caught my eye. I thought they were ducks but after some research
I find they are Barnacle Geese thanks to the RSPB web site I think they would make an interesting watercolour study and good for practising tonal work.
This reminded me of 'Red boat on Windermere' a watercolour I painted last year. It's become one of the projects in my Online watercolour course
Ducks all settling down for the night and Fresh snow on Robinson in the distance.
