Wet and wild


This was a heavy day to start with, strong winds and fast moving clouds full of rain. Walking on the Eden flood plain near Haxted I felt the weather head on, what a way to inject energy into paint. In this waterlogged meadow I saw the the rain coming straight towards me, I knew I had a few minutes (10 at most) to get something down on paper. Easel up, paper down, open self wide to the panorama and then hit the page with tone and colour.
Then the rain hit me. Game over.
Looking at the little picture now its big with atmosphere and energy - I can feel that wind now.
