meaning the painting I had drawn out and started to paint was abandoned thanks to the big storm we had in Essex today. The sky went so dark, I couldn't continue to paint, or even photograph what I had already done.
Sadly in the move to the new house, my natural daylight lamp has been mislaid.
So instead, have a look at this window, an exercise from one of my many watercolour instruction books.
