MORE LOCAL IMAGES – WATERCOLOUR SKETCHES

P1030733a

The heatwave continues -not good news for my garden – forcing me  up early to explore the local area. I see these cottages when I travel by train into Liverpool and their shapes always catch my eye, so I set my stool up along the lane which leads to the railway line, As I painted  a dog came along and attacked me, knocking over my cup of tea, and water container.  It wasnt very big – just a nuisance. The owner followed and kicked the dog away and wanted some info on my website and prices  – but as to yet no sales,

The next day I set down by the River Douglas, warily watched by grazing sheep – though none attacked.  which meant I could drink my tea

. Wading birds stilted the muddy flats and squabbling ducks caused a heron to fly off for more  peaceful fishing.

This is a bit further down the River Douglas . I wanted to get closer to the moored boat, but despite over half an hour of trying I had to settle for this  original view. I have a rule where I dont paint things I can barely see, but after all my efforts and the sun getting higher,  I let slip this rule, though with my telephoto lens I did get enough should I want to paint it at home.
