This may be the last week of excavation in Trench Y.  I therefore need to complete collecting material on it.  

This morning they were clearing away earth and rubble to get to the ‘natural’ earth, using shovels and mattocks – and passing comments on how much earth they move compared to other trenches.  I settled into a corner, just out of range of the flying earth and did a watercolour to use as background for the drawing. 

It’s a bit overworked so I thought I’d do another more spontaneous version – but as I left the Art Hut the rain started.  While I enjoy the accidental interference of rain on watercolour, that was not my choice today.  Maybe tomorrow…
