On this rainy day I headed straigth to a hut in the woods. There was this typical laundry kind of smell in the air,temperatures well over 10°C and high moisture. The woodpeckers where very busy, but also other birds. I could identify a new bird, a warbler To work protected on the porch of the big hut was a kind of luxury, sitting in the dry makes the rain even more lovely. As usual I worked my way from the sky and distant background forward to the foreground.

    Fascinating collection, I really do find great inspiration in your style. I am trying to achieve the feeling of depth which youe achieve in these sketches.
