Railway cottages at Carlton Scroop
'Say what you need to say in a painting then get out. There is no need
to chatter on after you have made your point.'
This is a great example to illustrate the saying. When I started this
painting at 10am it was -1.5 degrees C. At 11.30 I was surprised to
find myself still comfortable and tempted to carry on, but realised if
I did I would only be 'chattering on'. So I stopped here.
Now, an hour before I started this scene was covered in frost and
extremely beautiful. I'd like to get out here earlier on another
frosty morning before the sun starts to melt it all.
