Actually it isn't but the one I did today is far too light, the Church at Newton St Loe, and I've already put it on the ever growing reject pile. I would probably have been pleased with it a year or three ago but no longer.
Pat's back garden 16" x 12" waterford Not
This was painted last Saturday on our second 2010 visit to Pat's house at a village on the outskirts of Bristol. Weather was fine, a little cloudy but warm and I painted a scene looking through a gap between bushes. The main feature is the urn but following Charles Reid's dictum of not having a particular centre of interest decided to modify it and added several flowers. Actually they were growing in a border behind and to the side of where I sat so it's my own composition. I think it works quite well. Colours used included , Permanent Rose (W & N),Carmine (W & N), Quinacridone Gold (Maimeri), Ultramarine Violet (Rowney), Hookers Green (Maimeri), combinations of various blues and yellows, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber. Oh yes and Raw Umber.
