"Rainy Day at Lerryn, Cornwall"
I led a watercolour workshop at this village in Cornwall. I liked this view, as the different-shaped buildings went up the hill and around the bend. I didn't have time to paint it on the day so, I took a photo for reference. Unfortunately, as often happens, the photo was pretty disappointing and lacked atmosphere. Still, I had enough to go on and decided to paint the scene as if it were raining. I painted the reflections of the buildings onto wet paper, which gave the impression of a rain-soaked street.
