Hoping for rain

"Hoping for rain," 11 x 14 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper
Today's watercolor went places I didn't intend, attempting too much, I now realize.
Old barns inspire me, and I paint them often, because I can imagine the stories. 
I like the basic idea here, and the story of a farmer watching rain clouds in the heat of summer. 
But, after a slow start, at least I painted, not one for framing with too much I'm not proud of, but definitely one for learning.
