Watercolour of palm trees

Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolour on Fabriano cold pressed watercolour paper (12.5 x 18 cm)

It was hot. I procrastinated. Debated about what to paint. Eventually settled on palm trees. By the time I finished doing a graded wash it got darker and the clouds came in obscuring the outlines of the palms, so I painted them mostly by guesswork.
