We’ve been saturating ourselves in the multi-colourful world of JMW Turner this last week.
So time to go colour in this drizzly grey Saturday afternoon out there.
Haze is looking across towards Teignmouth from Shaldon beach.
She would have been seeing this
And she would have been seeing this
But there was hardly any time to get this scene set, or these boats sketched, before the drizzle arrived.
We had to retire to the shelter to eat our cheese sandwiches and drink our flask of tea.
The drizzle persisted and prolonged, becoming proper rain.
So we drive up to Labrador Bay. Here Haze can attempt another watercolour from the dry confines of the car (while listening to Woolf Works by Max Richter on the car stereo)
And this is the watercolour sketch she produced
JMW Turner approved, gave her the thumbs up!
