En Plein Air….. with rain, wind and hail!!!

 

Dusk on Stokka 9” x 12” oil on ultralight board.

With around two hours of daylight left and a weather report of ‘cloudy’ I set up my gear and started to paint. All was going well, basic sketch done, values sorted and sky colour shaped in. Then the clouds opened and down came the rain which then changed to hail all mixed in with a strong wind. I was amazed at my waterlogged palette and drenched painting rag and sipped my tea until the worst was over and then cracked on! The light changed as the sun tried to peek out but I had to continue with my original concept. I had no camera or even my phone so couldn’t really capture the fun and games. Suffice to say I am pleased to have done this little painting- I learned a lot doing it 😊☔️💨😳🇳🇴
