Rainy sketch

I went hiking with some colleagues and students for two days, and tried to make a quick watercolour sketch on site. We had a lot of rain during these two days, and of course in the middle of my sketch it came pouring down. The paper took forever to dry, and the background got rained on, so the contrasts disappeared. The “quickness” of it all got lost in waiting for my washes to dry. It´s a funny thing that water can be such a disaster for watercolours.
