Gorgeous light when I arrived at the Trundle yesterday. I liked the contrast of rich greens and strong shapes in the foreground to the soft pastels colours diffused by the mist on the horizon. You couldn’t see the sea or Isle of wight and the land and sky merged as one.
I painted this scene before in August this year, it was mid summer where the colours and light were so different, see pic.
The fence posts most were put down with a quick sweeping stroke same for the shadows too. Put too much effort on them and they look overworked and out of place.
I’m pleased with the end result!
For those who are fairly local to me I am starting to plan a Plein Air day workshop. It will be in this location (The Trundle, nr Goodwood) around May next year. Open to those who have had some experience of outside painting, limited to 8 places. Let me know if your interested and would like more information.
