Trees on a Misty Hill

I've had a somewhat fallow period since the General Election, on which comment would be painful, so I shan't make one.  Struggled with a few things, including a few watercolours, but the only one I think fit to show is this one - used a bit of salt, which has given it a misty quality I found reasonably appealing.   I've been using Fabriano paper, instead of my usual Bockingford, Arches, or Saunders .... not getting on with it too well at the moment, although it took the salt and water well.

I'm having a bit of trouble with inspiration just now, but trust it will return eventually.   Probably a good thing to have a bit of a rest from painting now and then - it gives you a chance to have a think about what you're doing.

Anyway, here's the one thing I've painted for a week or so....
