Winter





I was back on the banks of the river Stour, near Bryanston again today - as I have been nearly every day this week.

Although we haven't had the deep snow seen in other parts of the country it has been bitterly cold, with light snow showers and freezing drizzle.

The canvas I've been working on is relatively large, and it takes time to simply cover in paint - let alone to make continual decisions about the direction and development of the painting.

I finished the painting today, and I'll post a picture of it once I've had a chance to photograph it. As usual I'm working right up until dark, so I didn't have a chance to do that when I ended the session.

I look forward to seeing your new work.
You are very dedicated to your work to brave this bitter cold. Lots of layers does the trick for me.

Have a great Christmas break :)
