Another picture from a photograph taken on a dull, colourless day. Originally, I set out to just do an ink drawing but I couldn't resist putting some washes on it. I then, as is so often the case, started to fuss over some of the washes. To me the result is a picture which isn't really sure what it's supposed to be. What I was pleased about was the light in the picture, as I said, the photograph is dull and overcast, I tried to brighten the scene and freshen it up and, to a point, I succeeded. As I type this the rain is lashing down outside and gusts of wind drive it against the window. Another cold, miserable, drab day. There seems to be no end to this disgusting weather, it's all the more frustrating as I determined to try doing most of my work "plein air" this year. Ah well, time to look through the photographs again!!!
