A pleasant day painting with Bruton Art Society at Fiddleford Manor, Sturminster Newton, Dorset. Overcast unfortunately & so nearly rained but still worth doing some small oil sketches as it was a beautiful place to be.
As you might guess the sun came out towards the end of our time there.
I shall go back to admire the bare rooms of the manor & to paint again (properly!) another day.
The Stour was apparently 10ft higher than usual & not far off the level of the field.
Good to be in the countryside amongst other painters but the day went too quickly
