AND THE SUN COMES UP OVER BOWLAND – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1150297(1)

I thought I had already posted a version of this before, but when I went through the filters on this blog  it appears that this is the first time. I’ve actually painted this scene twice before and put at least one version on my website, but I wasn’t particularly pleased with the result and subsequently took it down. The other day  I found one of  these old versions and wondered if I could  improve it by running paint about al la Nita Engle to get the smooth transitions  I felt were needed and this is the result. I am certainly happier with it.

The view is of the forest of Bowland seen from the M6 as we were winging our way homeward. We had just crossed the Pennines and it was a squally day and suddenly the sun appeared from behind the clouds and a nearby hill, illuminating some fields below.
