Close to our new place a gorgeous Rhododendron is flowering. I had to have a piece and painted it at home, a quick water colour. I tried to get the impression of the exuberance of colour of the flowers in the sun.

I was standing on New Brighton pier looking out towards Sumner. The sun shone on the sea. The different
bands of colour in the water intrigued me: where the sand shone through the colour changed and on the
beach was lots of white from the waves. I did a pen sketch at the pier and added the wash at home.
