Went sketching with the group on the park today but it was one of those times when nothing went right. I faced my subject the wrong way and was blinded by the light, then whilst sitting on my stool in front of a seat I became very aware that it is the school holidays so was inspected by children and their accompanying adults as well as a number of dogs which have the disconcerting habit of suddenly appearing at ones side. Then a huge black cloud came over solving the problem of blinding sun but rendering the subject almost invisible. When I opened my little paint box I found I had forgotten to fill the water tank so used spit instead but obviously could not produce enough to wash brushes out so scribbled with a pen instead. Maybe it was my fight with a recalcitrant printer that started the day badly but the end result is this. Not my finest hour!
