February Evening

7"X5" Watercolour on paper

Still very cold but going up to 7C with rain this weekend apparently.

In case anyone is interested, when I can't work from life, I take a very low resolution picture with my cell phone, look at the thumbnails to see what composition seems most effective and then work something up from there. The ones I like best I may work up further at some point, although my painting a month resolution is already falling by the wayside. I have abandoned January for the time being beacuse I am very dissatisfied with it, and I don't have much of February left. I am going to be in England for the latter part of the month and won't be doing any larger paintings while I am there. I do hope to do some skething though and I will take my watercolour pochade with me.
