Midday Shade

Just a quick one, today. I sat in the shade of some trees, surrounded by several clumps of nettles, to paint this. I had to work quickly as I was out cycling in my lunch hour, hence the smaller size. I'm thinking I'll probably stick to doing smaller studies for a while, concentrating on getting my values and colours right, without getting carried away with a full painting. I'll be able to paint more frequently, too!

  1. Love your canvas, Seurat would have approved. The light at the moment is amazing isn't it. You put us all to shame, painting in your lunch hour.
