THE BULL IN THE NEXT FIELD -WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

P1040056(1)a

We went for another walk, this time near to Pevensey, close to where the Normans landed to invade England – but that was a while ago and they had moved on. My planned circular route was scotched by a group of heifers which had gathered around the gate we needed to negotiate which caused my wife to refuse to enter the field. So we had to go back the same way. On the walk I sat down and did a sketch of the flat marshlands. As I worked a bull strolled into view. Now that is a field even I might refuse to  enter.

I did this second painting  of Litlington and its 12th century church, in East Sussex on the same day as I painted the sketch of the walk in the woods posted on my last blog. It got delayed as  I had to finish it at home.  I ran out of time on the day, because I had arranged to meet my wife at Alfriston Church at 4pm and didnt want to keep her waiting –  I didnt want to to risk walking home.

    • Thanks Shawn. There is a lot of underpainting, with successive darker tones on top – 3 or 4 layers. I also do a bit of scrubbing out to regain lights and paint back into those areas.
