Leicestershire spring countryside 22 April 2011

Here are some more plein air watercolours whilst out on cycle rides in Leicestershire.
Getting back in the swing of things! First, I rode to Wistow and painted the first three from within the same field. Later I rode out to Foston with huge expanses of yellow fields rolling into the distance, this was a successful place to paint, quiet and seemingly miles from anyone. The last two are views around Countesthorpe and Great Glen
