I was out early painting this scene, it’s one I see when I walk my dog. I did a sketch of it a while ago.
I was hesitant when I first arrived this morning as the scene was quite subdued with muted colours and no direct sunlight. See the photo below. I decided to still paint it but intensify the colours that were there. I really like the shape of the silhouetted pine trees so made them a bit bigger than they were.The sky was nothingy so I put a warm apricot – a colour from some trees and put it behind the pines this also emphasised them (the camera didn’t pick up this colour very well.)
I am pleased with the final result especially considering what I was looking at!
