Blackdown Hills

One afternoon we watched a Chinook helicopter crash across the valley. Then we had tea.

Sorry for answering the question here but didn't find your mail adress
For permament ink I use Noodler's Black Ink, no sign of clogging the Fountain Pen. Apparently it reacts chemically with the cellulose in the paper.
I'll answer the question on my blog as well

love the atmosphere in this piece. The hedge and the tree look 3D. I enlarged it because I thought those 2 elements were cut out and glued on!

Ha, ha! Everything stops for tea.
Excellent watercolor and commentary. Gotta love Brit dryness.

Cheers!

Lovely scketch. The quote beneath is quite intersting and thought provoking. To me it is a statement about the world we live in, where tragedy has become entertainment and we are not the least bit phased by it. I think I'll have my tea now!
