This painting was based on a photo taken whilst on holiday last May. It was a very overcast day so I had to change it a bit. Despite the weather it was so picturesque that I knew I wanted to paint it. I'm not sure that I've done it justice though.
I used Bockingford 300gms paper and students
watercolours.The size is approx 10 x 12ins.
Thank you Bob for your help with the colours for thatch.
I had a problem with the sky as the paint was drying too quickly to lift out the clouds successfully also I'm not sure about the foreground shadow or the bush on the left. In the photo, my husband was standing by the far cottages but I decided to leave him out!
