An Old Friend – Watercolour and Gouache in a Watercolour Moleskine

Nothing special about this except it was started last Sunday on a sketching trip to Almondell Park. I had planned to leave the main path, next to the suspension bridge which is at the play area/barbecue facility but the noise – and the mouth watering smell of grilling burgers suggested I should go no further. This is the scene, just before crossing the bridge. The canopy of trees is so dense, at this time of year, I didn’t realise that it had been raining heavily until I left the shelter of this tree, one I have sketched many times. I wondered why the smell of food had ceased and the children had become quieter.
