Managed to get out into the sunshine on Saturday and painted a nearby stream which feeds into the Ouse. It was cold but so nice to be outdoors amongst the elements. A little furry creature swam across the water a couple of times but I’m not sure what it was. It didn’t seem to mind me hanging around for a while anyway.

I liked the lines/shapes of the overhanging branch and reflections. The sun kept popping in and out which made it tricky but sometimes you have to rely on a bit of memory. The key is to observe with intent so that you have the information safely tucked away! This isn’t something I’ve mastered but practicing is certainly the best way to improve. Anyway, here’s the pics….
