I found myself in London with a little spare time last Friday. I had with me an Aquash brush, some watercolour pans, two or three water colour pencils and a small mount. I sketched this landscape in about half an hour. It’s night time in the picture, the hills in the distance are supposed to have lots of trees on them, and I was trying to create an effect of moonlight, both through a lightly cloudy sky and on the water. Given I didn’t have much time and only basic materials – I think the end product is OK. I gave the picture away as a birthday card later that evening.
