Approach through Lansdowne

DSCN9229

Having had a little time off from painting recently, I felt a little rusty and so painted this view of the River Windrush as it meanders it’s way towards the village from a hastily scribbled sketch in my studio.

The trees are only just beginning to hint of Autumn if you look closely, so there is still a lot of green around, which is always a challenge. At the moment I mostly tend to use Winsor & Newton New Gamboge (yellow) and French Ultramarine in various proportions, and for the darker areas use more of the blue with a touch of Winsor Violet.
