Early sun - plein air

Early sun - plein air

I was impressed with this piece yesterday when I spotted it Peter. I do love that sky, so easy to overdo these and look a bit sickly! I also like your minimal treatment of the grassland. The only thing I would have done is added a strong highlight to a portion of the stream.

Thanks Alan, much appreciated. I take your point bout a highlight on the stream, maybe a bit of final touching to do.

You're welcome Peter, I see its made the home-page gallery!

Love your palette, Peter, plein air is always best even when cold!!

Thanks Thalia, the fingers were getting a bit numb towards the end.

Really love this, beautiful colours and a lovely calm feel to it

Thanks Rachel, that's very kind.

I really like this painting in all ways.

This is so lovely and relaxing and I love the vapour from the planes. I often sit out in the garden and look up at those. Gorgeous painting !!

Thank you Val-Irene and Audrey, it is good to know someone appreciates it.

Excellent painting Peter

Thanks Dermot, much appreciated.
