South of St. James

I started this piece in the sun, and therefore had to abandon mid way into an outdoor painting. I had my towel draped over my head from the start but it just all got too intense! Anyway I have decided, I need better tools, including paper... certain of the fact that fabriano watercolour paper just won't do!! Also I miss my no.8 sable, which a friend had BORROWED while I wasn't looking! Hmmm suspect! Its true what they say about that brush though, it does the job.

Apart from the tools lesson this little painting provided a few other lessons along the way as do all attempts from life, and so a note worth making an a post worth posting! I hope I can revisit this site soon as I have it in mind a different angle.
