Drizzle at Dawn

 Oil on board 20 x 15 cm or 6 x 8 inches
I got down to my "place on the Helford" just before dawn.  There was  a soft drizzle of rain but not enough to stop painting.  It was so peaceful, gentle breathing of the river as small wavelets stroke the shore, the dawn chorus in the woods and the liquid calls of the waterbirds echoing out across the river.  As the time ticked on the light changed and I did this gouache as well.
