Another collaboration of sketches "on site" and remembered shapes and feelings. This one is a walk I take often. This day is a quiet, grey winters day, the distant trees are spectoral, hidden in pockets of mist, nearer they become skeletal against the grey sky. There is no dramatic lighting just a subtle collection of colours, a damp dripping day but one filled with understated architecture, branches reach skyward making cathedrals in the woods, moss and ferns are soft cushions in the gloom.
Again I have played with the idea of including some of the sketches with the final painting.
I like this idea very much, it is like a providence, notes in the margins. However I do think a click on the image is nescessary to see the detail.
