This afternoon I started a watercolour that really didn’t work although I may be able to salvage something from it later. To cheer myself up I sloshed some acrylic paint on to a canvas and came up with this.

I am only doing one dog walk per day now as per the government guidelines. I go out at 7.30 in the morning and Ginny takes them in the afternoon. On Sunday the early sunshine was catching the top of the stone bridge in Branksome Chine. I have painted this bridge before back in the autumn when the colours were red and gold. It’s nice to see the spring greens appearing daily.

I have just finished the monthly challenge for the group Purely Watercolour and found I am too late! Never mind I enjoyed drawing the Russell Cotes museum which is my favourite building here in Bournemouth. I used line and wash in my sketch book so couldn’t go too mad with the colours.

Walking down to the beach through the woods early yesterday the sun was streaming through the trees and the morning mist turned the figure of a man walking his dog into a silhouette. I grabbed a quick photo as he disappeared round the corner so I could paint it later.
