All who were at Shere for the painting day out can vouch for my emotion at painting this – I was so irate with it that I chucked my water over it. Back home I was determined not to be beaten and had a go at improving it. Is better than it was. I was amazed to find in my new painting manual that pouring water over a picture (hot or cold) is a useful technique. The manual does not have a section on bad moods.
