Good Painting Day in the Cotswolds

Today was a very good day to be a watercolor painter in Chipping Campden. I sat in front of a beautiful thatched cottage and painted all afternoon.



While I was painting an endless parade of interesting people walked by and talked with me. An entire high school class from Japan, a couple from Michigan, a retired gentleman, a lady riding in a wheel chair, a family from Austrailia and an engineer from Manchester were some of the people I met.  

Here is the drawing I did of the thatched cottage. 



I painted furiously all afternoon, engulfed in a haze of creative euphoria.  I will show you the painting tomorrow.  The painting will spend the night in my sketchbook while I am sleeping and I will study it with fresh eyes tomorrow, add some paint blobs and such and then post it here.
