Lake district in Watercolor

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog! 
In 2013 my wife encouraged me to take up art as a hobby and a way to reduce stress. The painting I am showcasing today is the first piece I ever painted it now hangs proudly on my mother's living room wall:

This is a painting of one of the lakes in the English Lake District. we had visited the area the year before during the summer bank holiday. As usual for a British public holiday it rained most of the time but I managed to take photos of the lakes drying dry spells and I used one of these as reference.

At the time I decided to use the medium of water colors, after watching various artists paint similar scenes I set to work. It took a while to complete but I loved the result.
