The reed beds

I did this yesterday, wet in wet, from the memories of the reed beds down by the mouth of the river Murray we were there several months ago and suddenly yesterday needed to get some paint on paper. I think it has come out a bit light but it may be my monitor.
might look better if you click on it to enlarge it and I really must wipe my scanner, that dot is not on the painting.
We had a new foal born this morning, a rather lovely elegant part welsh filly. I think she is about to give her mother the run around as already she is off for a canter around the paddock.
I am aching this morning, not sure if its the weather or the lessening of the meds, it is cool and windy but we are off for what I hope will be a lovely lunch today.
Better get ready or John will be back from looking at a potential new milk tank and I am still in my work clothes! My good intentions of cutting a few more things back have gone out of the window as my wrists are so uncomfortable. Maybe tomorrow.
