Small is beautiful (..so they say)

The weather has not been conducive to much outdoor painting so I have decided to do a few smaill oil sketches at home but using the trusty  ‘pochade box’ I often take with me out on location.  This only takes small painting boards measuring 6″ x 8″ so the paintings are pretty compact.  The pochade box only has a small paint mixing area too so a limited palette of 5 or 6 colours is all I had to work with.  All good practice when it comes to colour mixing!

These three all have a Norfolk theme and are based on sketches and photos made/taken last month over a pretty cold and cloudy weekend.
