I taught a 1:1 plein air teaching day with Chris, this was the view near his house. We enhanced what was there – I liked the wheat field so made bigger and the feature. Also when the sun came out I put the foreground shadow in. I walked a little left to see the hills in the background so I could paint them in even though they weren’t in my eye-line – adds compositional interest! It was a good day and Chris was great to teach as he was eager to learn and did a lovely painting!
