Thackers Farm

On Sunday, while my roast finished crisping in the oven, I set my mobile alarm for twenty minutes and headed off down the drove to the adjacent farm for a quick sketch on a spread I had prepared with watercolour earlier that morning.
I slipped a blob of white gouache in my watercolour palette and added it to my mixes for some opaque coverage in areas.
Just as my alarm sounded, the heavens opened and I was so pleased I had taken the car!

Whoah! Cutting it fine there, supposing you'd had a puncture! Dinner ruined!
