Old plein air

Even though this isn’t a brilliant painting, it’s one of my favourites. It’s one were I finally started learning the value of values. 😉 I quickly painted this before scurrying back to the hall as the rain came, and then spent a rainy afternoon fixing the bright colours I’d put in on the hill.

I said I had a road phase, snapping photos when sat in the passenger seat. What I really like is bright colours, and green. Looking at all these old paintings I am wondering why it took so long to learn values….
