September storms



Gathering cloud - the Needles   13x10cm watercolour on paper   ©2012 Lisa Le Quelenec



I have been continuing my experiments with 'black' watercolour that I started last year. You can see the original posts  here  and  here .  Since Sunday we have been 'blessed' with really heavy rain storms occasionally shot through with blazing sunshine. The sky has been very changeable with dramatic rain clouds and yesterday when they had rained themselves out and the sun shone I escaped to the beach. There was a very strong wind - too strong for painting down there but I did have a good walk and took some photos that may be used as reference. The sea was very choppy with lots of big crashing waves sending spray flying. I love this weather!

Lisa Le Quelenec said...

Thank you so much Lydie, you are right the skies have been tormented these last few days. Are you getting these storms too?

Thanks Loriann.

Hi Jeanette thank you. I hope things are back to normal after the storms you had. It's such a shame that you lost so many trees where you are.

Thank you Sharon. I love those happy 'accidents' that happen with watercolour. Has it been very wet where you are?
