A post like that is inspirational to me Dick and many thanks. If I had one thing to offer besides an intense love of painting I'd say it would be "be adventurous with colour".
Is a hen's egg really brown, or is that just what colour we expect to see? Have another look...... In two simple examples below, both simple ink and wash, to illustrate my point, there isn't one single item in either that is actually that colour in reality. That's the beauty of art..I apply this principal to all my work wherever I can. There's no one definitive colour for the sea or sky...they're how you want to see them. Be bold.......

Pen and wash.

Pen and wash is simpler and decidedly quicker, I did this this afternoon as a companion piece to the other Lake district watercolour. Original and framed versions based on a photograph..
