Angling for Clouds (revised)
Oil on canvas 50 x 40 cms. I've substantially repainted this one, adding more foliage to the foreground and retouching everything but the sky. The original is still in my gallery if you'd like to compare the two. (just saying ) *smile*. The painting shows one of Alkrington Nature Reserve's anging ponds, on the day I spotted these clouds in one of the small lakes. I nearly fell in the water when trying to take some photos, phone and all, after snagging my feet in the undergrowth. I just managed to keep my balance but laughed for a couple of minutes afterwards. Anyway, see what you think.
