"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Winter Hillside

A quick 10 minute watercolour sketch of the snow shadows falling across the hillside opposite home. Painted at 10am this morning. Half an hour later and under a more overcast sky the shadows, although still present were a much less intense blue colour.
