Apologies. This should have published last Friday August 30th. Me and technology are at constant odds.
In Austria, we based ourselves on a farm, not far from Salzburg. I fell in love with the tall spired churches and their colours. The ochres reminded me of Sapnish Colonial buildings, though they are never so tall and slim. We had bicycles to explore the surrounding countryside, always surrounded by softly curving hills. I carried only a very small watercolour set, water in a film container – yes, that long ago!
