Wanting to paint outside today, the only chance I had was just as a large black cloud rolled up, looking most threatening. I knew I only had a small amount of time before it began to rain. A quick drawing in my sketchbook would have to do. I wanted to show the dark clouds and the bit of brighter sky on the horizon behind the trees. I would have liked to have had a bit more time to make a better job of the clouds but I only just finished before the rain reached me.
