WESTBURY TOWARDS BRADFORD, From White Horse Hill. Spent longer than usual on this this morning. Just over 2 hours, Initially there were just those distant clouds. More clouds rolled in and covered most of the sky - shadows kept changing dramatically over the landscape.
I added the near clouds at the end The main quality of the view was the gradating sky so I thought that's a mistake, but now it seems to work and gives a 3D effect, leading one into the painting.
ERLESTOKE Sun catching the field, light snow on the slope in the distance. For once it was a cloudless day and I tried to capture the light in the middle ground, with the far hill casting it's shadow on the snowy slopes. Unfortunately I was standing in shade to paint this, got very chilly - temp about -2deg!
Autumn Poplar trees at Blackdog Crossroads. Another chance to paint these lovely trees which I enjoy seeing all year round as they change with the seasons. Here is a painting of them I did 3 years ago, a wider view. /Poplars%20at%20Black%20Dog%20Ccrossroad.jpg
