More tree shadows

Here’s the second of my tree shadows paintings.  The horizon is higher in this one with the emphasis more on the tree and field patterns.  There are always so many variations of green to mix when it comes to trees and fields in Summer and early Autumn.  I have noticed that the trees are starting to change colour now and I hope to record this over the course of the next few weeks, weather permitting.

You Wensum, you lose some

Here’s a painting I mislaid and have now found – so I thought I would share.  It was inspired by a walk in early May along the banks of the beautiful River Wensum in Norfolk.  Sorry about the pun. It made me laugh.

 

A splash of colour

To chase away the January blues I thought I would share a bit of colour.  A couple of oranges  led to three small paintings …and a juicy snack!

Winter light

Happy New Year!

It has been cloudy and wet here so far this Winter and sunshine has been in short supply.  However when the sun comes out the light can be pretty special, especially with the sun so low in the sky.  I have seen some fantastic sunrises and sunsets in recent weeks, some of which I hope to include in future paintings.

To kick off 2016 here’s a small painting recording that low light early in the morning and the dazzling effect of walking towards the sun.  I had no sketch book with me at the time (I was doing the school run!) but managed to take a number of photos on my my mobile phone.
