Landscape.

A view of Buttermere in the English Lake District from a photograph a colleague took.
The original and a virtual framed one. The size is 12" x 9".

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

Many thanks Terry. Comments like that make it all worthwhile.

Very nice, it looks more like an oil than a watercolor

Hi Liz. That's possibly because the paper I use is slightly textured and might give a canvas impression. I did one oil painting when I was about ten but never took to oils.
I've never even tried accrylics. Strictly a water man, me.

Thought I'd share this with you. This happened by sheer luck and certainly not from any photographic skills (I have none whatsoever ) My painting was on a table near the kitchen window when the sun suddenly came out and shone on it through the leaded windows. The effect was quite amazing, so much so that I had to photograph it. I won't pretend I had much to do with it, but loved the result.

Usually, but not always, I just save as My Pictures and click auto-focus as the camera pics show lighter than they really are. My camera, a Sony Cybershot is a few years old and is okay for all normal usage but is isn't an expensive one.
