Enjoyed a couple of hours painting in the garden of this lovely cafe next to the canal. I always like the chatter with people and was very grateful for the free cuppa from the proprietor.
The end result!

Spring morning beside this lovely spot. Nattered to the fisherman about what might be caught in the canal now - apparently trout in this section. A bit different to when I was a lad - all you could hope for was gudgeon and shopping trolleys!
Once I'd finished I sat on the warm grass and enjoyed a picnic lunch...lovely!

We've had the warmest February on record here in the UK. This is more like it should look in the depths of winter and how we were fixed this time last year.
I've used a limited palette to reflect the winter atmosphere.
