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.
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.
The challenge in this image was to try to record the wind. The clouds were scudding by and ominously dark rain clouds were approaching…..
Another Winter piece, this time recording the weak sun setting over a small lake at Holkham. I think the image has a rather peaceful quality. In reality Just beyond the lake the geese were settling down to roost and were making a right old racket!
It’s feeling like Winter now with a biting wind. The light is still good though, if the sun comes out. Here’s my attempt to catch that low sun and the fantastic patterns in the mudflats at the RSPB reserve at Titchwell, Norfolk
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!
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.
