I really enjoyed painting these watercolours last week. I love the colours of winter, (although I really dislike the darkness). Even into December there’s still autumn colour in the grasses on the moors, and in the remaining leaves which haven’t been whipped away. So far this autumn has been a really colourful one, we haven’t yet had too many gales. These paintings are from photos and sketches made in previous winters, although not so much from last year, when the predominate colour was mud.
