Painting by Numbers

Thursday 14th September 2000
the wood at dusk THE LIGHT FADES as I paint the view of the wood from our patio windows. I can hardly see the colours that I'm mixing but I remember where they are in the box.

A moth flutters around the patio. A Bat appears briefly and circles once or twice over the lawn.

Over the wood a Heron flies slowly, just above the treetops; a silhouette in the page
