Summer allows me more time to experiment with my painting a bit. This very quick sketch was an inspiration from a John Blockley book that I revisited. He died in 2002, but I had the privilege of meeting him in his studio in Stow in the Wold, Cotswolds several years ago. His studio was in an old historical Cotswold building. He experimented most of the time in watercolor, ink and pastel, which enabled him to create some very interesting effects and textures. This image is my first attempt at painting this way.
