AMBLESIDE SPRING – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I am presently reviewing some of my old paintings and looking at a change in style. Here is one painting I decided to rework. It is a view across the fields at Ambleside in the English Lake District. I felt it needed emphasis of both the gentle changes in tone in the background and the light and shade of the foreground. By happy accident, extending the same palette across the whole picture produces a satisfying cohesiveness.

I may have different opinions in a few months time, but at the moment I think I have moved forward on this one. There are many more to go, if I have the stamina.

AMBLESIDE IN THE SPRING – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1080444(1)

It was a sunny spring evening in Ambleside near Lake Windermere in the English Lake District. I was facing into the evening sun and I painted undisturbed for about an hour. I have done two paintings subsequently, this being the second. I thought I could do with a break from the acrylics, I have been dong recently.
