Went out walking and drawing yesterday with my friend Owen and obligatory pack of dogs along the Lune from Halton. We sat above the flooded river, wearing sunglasses, raincoats, and wellies (and in my case, suncream). But strong sunlight and heavy rain at the same time does make everything look bright, sparkly and dramatic, and the clouds were exceptionally good. I drew this using watercolour pencils and I used the raindrops to smudge it a bit. We both ignored the most obvious things in the view; a massively flooded river, and 4 large and irritating dogs.
