WALK IN THE WOODS 2 – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1040101a

Following my watercolour sketch – Walk in the Woods – I presented a week or so ago, I thought that I would develop it a little.  I liked the bands of light and shade created by the beeches in this wood on The Southdowns Way, close to the Cuckmere Valley. I mentioned in the blog that I took some pictures of passing walkers and I put in a couple with their sticks. I also kept the colours muted and resisted my urge to bang in some scarlet amongst the greens. Not sure whether it has the impact of my Dog Walkers where I succumbed to the scarlet urge – but maybe I got some of the calm I experienced on the day. Hope it calms you, also.
