A STORM CLOUD OVER WILTSHIRE
This 180deg scenic view is comprised of five photographs stitched together - taken from the escarpment of Salisbury plain, from Redhorn Hill above Urchfont. It was a slow moving scene, so I tried to paint it but at the same timeI realized my puny 14" x 10" painting board would not capture the grandure. I'd only just managed to get a little of the scene downbefore being driven to shelter by a stormy downpour. .
The result is I've bought more 3mm ply and have cut much longer format boards for future works i.e 30" x 10", Hoping I can capture something worthwhile on them .......
