With the light not as good of late and other commitments, I havent been out early morning painting recently, though this Friday I woke to a glorious morning, but I was unprepared as the weather forecast hadnt been that good and I had to let that slip by.
Here is what I have in my new sketchbook, done earlier in the month. The one above was painted with my back to the canal, taking in the country around Downholland in Lancashire.
Another one looking away from the bridge over the Leeds Liverpool Canal onto one of the many barn conversions.
But I couldnt resist the canal for long, not in this early morning light.
This was a barley field, looking over to Clieves’ Hills. When I completed this I had a ride around on my bike and saw the path cut into the barley and the view was more into the sun. It was this that was the subject of the pastel painting I put on the blog a week ago.
Finally, this was a view of a field I painted that I found when I discovered a footpath on my map I had never tried before. It gave me some other views I might paint later. It started to cloud over as I painted so I returned home, only to find the cloud gone by the time I got back.
