This watercolour painting, 7.5x10.5 ins. Fab artistico 140lbs paper, is very impressionistic, painted with abandon, without constraint. The reason was, I often just paint subjects or landscapes, to be experimental with washes or colour, to see where they go. I had just put this one to one side, as I intended to consider its fate later, bin or use the other side of the paper? My daughter saw it, and really liked it. So that is that. It's a scene, of a water meadow by the river Barrow with a church in the background. An old tried and tested scene I guess, but I loved the colours and the looseness of the whole painting.
