WE’VE HAD RAIN!!!!!
And I’ve been dancing in it!
Well, it rained for about five minutes this morning whilst I was driving, but I was still dancing in the car… thus in the rain! I soon had to stop, however, as when I switched on my windscreen wipers, the windscreen was smeared and caked in a thick, gloopy, muddy layer. A quick windscreen-swill later, and my vision was restored; although the rain was gone.
A grey day remained – which was fabulous! I’m not too keen on it being too hot.
Today’s watercolour, my thirteenth, took less than ten minutes to do. What do you mean ‘I can tell!’? I’ll have you know that this is a wet on wet painting, so it had to be quick. I pretended to be painting it in the rain, and one wouldn’t really want to be doing that for long, would one? I also allowed the paint to do what it wanted, after I’d given it a gentle push.
It does have a wet look, which I quite like, and I also like the reflections (I think I like painting reflections – I wonder if there’s a meaning in that somewhere?) but it is also intended to have an abstract feel to it. Well, it has to have, really, hasn’t it?
Not all watercolours need to be scenes though, so 13/13 for #WorldWatercolorMonth is a view of something through the rain.
