You'd think that, after doing two commissions in a short space of time, nothing would be more relaxing than to sit down with a good book and a cup of tea. But the sky last night was so beautiful that I couldn't help myself. The sky beckoned me to paint it from a bench in our front yard.
It was nothing complex, nothing fussy, just clouds and light and shadow. I came back into the house quite refreshed. It just goes to show that a "busman's holiday" isn't such a crazy idea, after all.
