4.30pm

Gouache on paper
13 x 20 cm or 5 x 8 inches
The tide has just turned, it is raining, cold and getting dark.  Not very nice but fresh and solitary so almost lovely.  This is pencil and gouache.  Quite a change for me and I like it, there are the sloppy washy qualities of watercolour and the covering ability of oils and a fine chalky finish which is interesting to work with.  Anyway part of this project, apart from getting out there and just doing it is to explore different mediums, which is what I have done.  Painting in the rain is still a challenge though!
