Today however, its going to be different I thought. I limited myself to a small 8 x 10 inch board which I had covered in a light orange wash, a few acrylics a stay wet palette, a folding easel, and a couple of brushes and off I went.
Its surprising how cold it is today! and windy!

Once I got there I thought, well, the orange will brighten the whole thing up. I chose the orange base because its very 'Cotswolds' but when I set off I fancied doing some cows.
The whole thing took less than an hour and before I knew it I was back at home putting the kettle on. Its a scene just outside Northleach, totally rural and very traditional.
There was a lovely reflection in a puddle that I rather liked and the moving targets were a challenge, I was determined once I had placed them not to fiddle, so the one in the middle looks a bit odd, but it did!
