House across the field

Painted this morning before the watercolour class from the field behind the village hall in Churchill. Not many people around except for a couple of dog walkers. The sky was nice and blue but clouded over during the morning. They are still predicting record-breaking temperatures over the weekend. I stood in a shadow cast by a tree and used a fence post to rest my Moleskine sketchbook on. If you are painting watercolours out in high temperatures, try and find some shade not only to protect yourself, but to reduce the glare from your white paper and to prevent your washes from drying too quickly. You may have to work a little wetter than you do normally.
