Great time of year to get out painting. The leaves have started to turn, but not yet too gaudy and overpowering. A bit of rain would be perfect to get the meadows and Fens flooded – but keep quiet I mentioned that. Got out yesterday first thing in the morning and at dusk. Quick sketch in Holywell – looking towards the sun for a change, and in the evening I went to a lonely pond I have found not far from Somersham. Not sure about this first attempt, but I think there will be plenty of scope for more as the setting sun will cast some interesting shadows.
