OK from tomorrow, normal service will resume. We’ll be back to quickies – these watercolour landscapes take so long and I really must earn a living and do my annual accounts!

I think there really is nothing like an English summer in the country. All our wet and rain, mean that it feels so much more summery than hotter climes, when we have days like these.

Sue I used masking fluid for some of the white (the little puffs of cumulus and the wisps of cirrus), ran a wash over everything and then worked more blue detail in to make the wisps more wispy so some of it was a bit dry brush-ish. I'm a bit of a purist about NOT using white but I'm beginning to think maybe I should re-consider
