Sketchy rock

I should never try to add colour to this particular sketchbook as it really doesnt like it. I saw this rock yesterday while we were walking my favorite walk, Kings Beach. It was a lump of quartz sitting up in the grass The two wet the bed plants were flowering by it and added a bit of colour to a fawn landscape of dry grasses.
I lost another mare to snake bite yesterday, this time with a foal at foot but the foal is ok. I am beginning to think I ran over a chinaman as the saying goes.
Very depressing.
Not really in the mood for sketching.
We did go to the pictures last night and saw Death At a Funeral, not all it was cracked up to be and I felt rather let down.
Tomorrow is the start of a week of watercolour classes. I am looking forward to it but in a way I am not, I am sure I cant remember anything. I need some classes to get me going again so I hope they will be what I am looking for. Trouble is she is talking about looking at what is within, I am not at all good at doing that and am not sure I want to know!

Hello Penny, Thanks for your comment on my blog - the town walk is Royal Leamington Spa, which is in Warwickshire, central England-not UK- about 15 minutes drive from Stratford upon Avon (which most people seem to know!) Good luck if you have a go at the screen printing.

How awful to lose another of your mares to snake-bite. That is really sad. Good luck with the painting classes.
