Fading Light over Doxey Marshes
Continuing my sky series for a double feature in TA next year. I’ve painted this area of marshland many times. It’s a haven for wildfowl with hides positioned at various vantage points around the marshes, which are great for sketching from.

Oil on Belle Arti board 40 x 50cm.
