Cloud studies

Back in August I spent a couple of days painting at Heybridge Basin on the east coast. The tail end of a hurricane was forecast to arrive the following day so I decided to get out and make some studies of the gathering clouds. These two studies were made whilst hanging onto my easel in increasingly strong winds; there is a lot to be said for my light-weight kit when I’m trekking around looking for a painting spot, but, there are times when it really is a little bit too fly away!
