Dodging the Downpours

I really hoped to get out and do some painting today, but the ‘showers’ that had been forecast turned into ‘tempests’ and there looked like no possibility of achieving anything at all. However in a brief lull I managed to have a quick walk through the meadows until I found the sort of composition I was hoping for. With no chance of painting on the spot I made do with a few pencil marks in a pocket sketch book and memorizing what I wanted so I could get it down on paper as soon as I reached home.

I used mostly yellow ochre, burnt sienna and French ultramarine with a little new gamboge, permanent sap green and winsor violet.
