Watercolour in Ellington Park and a ramble

I am trying to learn to paint nature, trees, skies and so on with watercolour at the moment. It is a very hit and miss business, mainly because I paint from life rather than photographs, I think I am getting better at the skies though I am not really sure about trees.

 This one is Ellington Park today, with the wind and balancing the equipment it really is a one brush and something that takes about 10 mins.

Looking at a photo taken from the same spot you can see the camera didn’t pick up the sky, which looked much closer to the photo of the painting that the photo of the scene. 

 The model railway club are building a new hut for trains or tea, whatever.

Oh yes and looking across the sea from Ramsgate to Deal, I think it wll be some time before I master the sea.

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
