Who Says Rainclouds Should Be Grey?

We had a storm a few years ago which was not like any other. The skies were extremely heavy and very reluctant to let go of the rains they held… but when they did, they did!

These photos were taken just before the rainfall.

Posted for Becky’s Square Perspectives.

Ruined Castle

Another sploshing of watercolour for #WorldWatercolorMonth. Today’s theme is ‘texture’ so I painted what appears to be a ruined castle in slightly better condition than most!

Sunrise or Sunset?

July is here, and so are two new blogging challenges.

Becky is back with her new Squares challenge, the theme this time around is Perspectives; and Charlie is back with his WorldWatercolorMonth challenge of 31 watercolours in 31 days.

I know that I will not be able to contribute to either challenge every day in July, but will do so whenever I can.

The rules for both challenges are simple: For Becky’s, the main photo in the post has to be square and feature some kind of perspective. For Charlie’s, just paint, paint, paint – in watercolour!

I’ve combined both challenges for this post. I painted a sunrise or sunset (you decide!) and included the paintbrush!

Links to both challenges are below, if you’d like to have a go at taking part in either, or both!

There was a young man called Tom
‘Oo into the Galaxy had gone
With guidebook in hand
‘E visited land after land
Lifts hitched through the use of the thumb!

Pendantry of Wibble set a little Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy challenge in honour of Towel Day on 25th May. This is my post in response!

My towel maybe somewhat misplaced, but by Jiminy I’m doing what I can to find it!
