It's blowing a hooly outside and feels more like autumn or winter than the middle of summer!! I'm off on a walk to the Lake District in the morning with a group of friends - it should be a guaranteed fine weather walk this time of year but not had many of those this year, instead I'll have the waterproofs out yet again!!! But it will be a day full of fun and laughter with friends so the weather can do what it likes!! Talking of being out of season, here is a painting I did last autumn of autumn leaves. I was actually pleased with how this one turned out - I like the colour combinations and the effects - this was one of those rare occasions when what I saw in my head before I started the painting actually appeared on the paper in front of me. Usually my brain says one thing and my paintbrush does something completely different!! Does that happen to any of you other artists? Please say it does lol!!!!
