Walk Three Hundred and Forty-Three – Two trees

Another whole day sat working in front of my computer. It was bitterly cold when I went out and I am exhausted as I was also working late last night so a quickie painting and the bare minimum walk round the bluebell wood and home to supper.

Hi Julie, home from holidays, back to the usual chaos, no time to comment on all your lovley drawings/paintings, but as usual give a lovely idea of your life and area. I am struggling to get stuff up on the blog, Adelaide today to see my mother, off again on sunday totally minus the computer so will have to collect lots of my sketches and get them up.

A very simple but effective composition. I like the small variation of colour in the clouds and the way that the field sort of undulate.
I also admire the idea of sketching within an hour of home. European communities seem to have more variety between country- and city-scapes, but that's not the point I guess. Its to be able to see your environment with a fresh perspective. Bravo! You've done extremely well.

Penny I look forward to seeing your sketches when thy're up. Alison those walks are good for me especially when ther's so much work on I'd be tempted to stay in.
Hi wheatgerm and Michael and welcome to my blog.

Love the colors, the expansive feel to the composition, and the very loose, dabby strokes. Looks like it was done with speed and spontaniety.
