View from a Window - WIP.
I was greeted with this stunning view early Friday morning from my studio window. A fabulous sunrise with the mist from the river shrouding the distant trees. The reflections on the pool created a warm glow - I just had to get this down on canvas. These can soon disappear, so I first took a photo as a backup. I’ve generally got a palette of colours laid out so I set to, my primary aim was to capture the graduated sky colours and reflections as accurately as possible, which I managed to do before it all disappeared - the rest of the scene I could work on later using the photo if necessary. I’ll continue later today now it’s dry, and will revert to my all-important photo for the colours. I’ll be adding some texture to the sky, but I’ve got an accurate base to work over. Oil on Talens canvas board 40 x 50cm.
