Before the rain
watercolour on Arches block 5.9 x 11.8 inches
It feels strange to be able to see the ground again after weeks of threading ones way through tall grasses - or not being able to get through at all. Suddenly it is all compacted down into a handful of bales. I just finished this as the first drops of rain began to fall.
An hour later I was sitting by the river with a mug of tea and sketched this couple enjoying their lunch. The earlier rain didn't come to much at all.
