|Storm building - sketch from memory 11x11cm watercolour ©2016LisaLeQuelenec|
Yesterday I was a real treat! Whilst I sat on the sand in brilliant sunshine I watched a storm building over Studland, break and then move quickly out to sea. I think it must have made quite a downpour as the dark of the sky became as dark as the land and you couldn't see where one ended and the other began at one point. Tiny little flecks of white sails stood in contrast, lit up from the sun that was bright on my side of the bay, chasing the storm. The strong light reflecting the white sand at the bottom of the water made areas of the sea a gorgeous milky turquoise - a beautiful contrast to the brooding purplish/indigo of the sky.
All told it couldn't have lasted more then ten minutes or so and was such a thrill to watch, even my little prince watched enthralled. As soon as I could I had to try to record the memory in my sketchbook.
