Sunlight


I spent yesterday on Winfrith Heath again, working on the painting I started earlier in the week - and which is pictured in the kitchen in the previous post.

Here you can see it when I'd finished for the day. The low January evening sunlight can be see coming through the canvas, so you can see the silhouette of the stretcher. Sitting on the heath all day was a real pleasure. There were times when it was positively warm, it was so sunny.

Well the weather has now changed, and I'm going to have a wait a day or two before I continue with this painting. Not because I mind being out in cold weather, but because to work on the painting I need the weather (and time of day, but that's another post) to be similar to previous sittings. So now I wait for a clear February day.
