Lower Slaughter, Cotswold

We visited this beautiful Cotswold village, Lower Slaughter in September this year on our way from Burton on Water. It was a sleepy afternoon with clouds hanging over. A typical cotsworld village scene, I was attracted by the overpowering trees and their reflections in the waterway.  Focussed on the trees and the reflections I overlooked the clouds to make a simple sky. I think that helped to direct the attention to these two elements. Arches 300 gms rough surface took some punishment while I floated wahes over washes all over not excluding the sky, which saw 3 glazes of different colours.
