Walk Two Hundred and Thirty – Lots of walking in the rain


On our way back from Dorset last night the car broke down and we had to wait for an hour and a half for a breakdown truck to take us back home. Fortunately Robin was very quick witted and we were able to get off the very fast and very dangerous road as the fan belt was in the process of breaking. However it has meant that most of today I’ve been walking back and forth in the pouring rain where normally I would use the car for part of the journey. And it looks as though it’ll be a couple of days at least before it’s fixed so plenty of exercise tomorrow as well.

Wondered where you had gone Julie, I agree there are times to draw and others when it is impossible. I can see from your perspective that my dry paddocks would look lovely (the flies are not!!) and in their own way they are, but at the moment give me your cold and wet.Lovely sketches as usual.

I'm sorry to hear about your car, but glad you got off the road in time. I really like your rendition of the seat around the tree trunk.

I think these two may actually be my favourites! They are just wonderful. Thanks for the response to my last comment. It's interesting what you say about posting - whether you are happy or not - and letting go of the picture. That's really interesting and definatley food for thought.

I should've warned you Penny - my sister was ringing worried because my blog had been left alone for a couple of days! Thanks Hashi, Alison and Andrea.

As Alison said, beautifully soggy - soggy paper and scene. It's good fun to muck about with a brush and water.
I've been shopping this morning and all my grand-daughter wants is paints, paper and brushes. She is four. I converted her to the joy of painting when she was over from Fiji a couple of months ago.

Clever Robin - glad to hear that you're all safe and sound if a bit soggy round the edges. How does one know when the fan belt is breaking?

I like the lettering on these - and a very nice 'wet in wet' effect! ;)

That is great Wendy, she'll have something fun to do for the rest of her life.
Katherine if first of all a warning light has been flashing for a couple of miles and then you hear a bang you know something is up ;)

You are the master at painting rainy scenes. This says "rain" better than anything I've seen. Lovely! And your lettering is so nice too.
