Sunny Sunday

A watercolour sketch of our back garden I did on Sunday - a beautiful day on which my family was all occupied with their own activities, so I gathered my long neglected paints and ventured out. I was trying to remember a quote I read recently about watercolour painting being a state of careful looking, and then flat panic, as that is exactly what I felt as I began placing the first tentative strokes and then necessarily and seemingly uncontrollably gained momentum. When I stopped for a breather, I was surprised to find a fair, if clumsy representation on the paper.
