I did this painting in June as a warm up to the Sky Landscape Artist of the Year program I was on. (See previous post) A large canvas 40x50cm done en plein air and trying to cover it as much as I could in one go, this is where I got up to outside:

I decided the bottom right walkway was too heavy and drew your eye there instead of the bridge, so I made it smaller and put the light on it, which makes a difference. Through out painting this I kept reminding myself the bridge is the subject, make it strong, be confident with it!

The person I added at the end to show scale and give life, I think it needs possibly another figure to balance him. I’m pleased with the colours and light in this one 🙂
