The Watershed Studio, in St Osyth, Essex, is one of the venues where I run painting courses. Based on a working farm, there is an old Ferguson tractor just outside the converted calf shed, which now serves as a painting studio. Every artist, I think, who has ever run a course there, has painted this old piece of farm machinery. I've painted it several times myself, and this is the latest small watercolour. I love the rusty bits, which are very colourful to paint.
