Drawing rain…

A penchant for watercolour

One of a series about the British Character


I’ve been doing a lot of this lately, but then when one is drawing for an exhibition about the British it is to be expected. The fact we’ve had gallons of it dropping down on us in the last few days helps. I’ve done several versions of this idea and this might be the best so far, until tomorrow when I will no doubt ‘go off it’. It started out like the one below, and I’m not sure if I prefer the first drawing or this, or as agonising starts, neither.


I’ve had a week of framing the originals for the exhibition in August, so it’s been good to get back to some drawing again, apart from a very welcome day off in Cheddar.

There’s more about this right here:

Pont: Graham Laidler, and the British Character

  1. Love the irony of the big sunshine on the picture on the easel! Nice touch. For what it’s worth I like the first version better.

    • Thanks for the kind remarks, first one certainly gets the idea across and was a very quick drawing. Perhaps I should have stuck to that!

  2. What a wonderful evocative drawing! Vancouver weather is almost identical to England’s, only more so.

    • I’ve experienced Vancouver rain and agree, though Scotland has the real deal, where rain comes at you parallel to the ground. Thanks for your kind comment.
