Oil on canvas 20" x 16" Working on a larger format, 'en plein air'.
The edge of Salisbury plain, looking West, with strange light/colour effects in the sky ..... There's a also a compositional challenge here ... I wanted to convey something of the richness of a roadside verge, some sunlight hitting a patch of brambles etc, yet it also relates to the overall landscape in some way. This has pehaps has too much of the wider landscape intruding. Below shows the progression of the work.
