Gardening and a bit of painting – Day 240

It was another beautiful day today so I spent the majority of it out in the garden. it’s been so dry and many plants needed to be cut back or deadheaded. It was very relaxing just to putter about.

I took about three quarters of an hour to work on the autumn landscape painting this afternoon. I made the blue of the water more intense as a base colour….there are still highlights and texture to be added. I’ve started bumping up the colours in the trees as well, this may take a couple more layers.
