I used the Bank Holiday to get up early and do some more painting at Woodwalton Fen – I was even there before the bird watchers. Happy with the results. I really needed my painting umbrella to stop glare.
This is how bad the glare can be when the sun is low!
When you look at the following images you will see how I move things around to try and make a satisfying picture. One advanatage over photography, and something I am getting more confident in doing.
For this series of paintings I am used textured boards which are really wearing my brushes out. The texture helps stop the colours going muddy, but I think I over did these.
I will leave all these painting to dry and then pick them up and tidy them up,were needed before framing. Less than half ever make it to completion.
