Contre Jour Yate Rocks, UK

Contre jour yate rocks

My favourite aspect, contre jour and painting against the light.  Yate Rocks again, near me, and a view up the road back into Yate from the river.  This semi lockdown has a nice effect of making me think more about local subjects.  How many great paining opportunities are there within a mile or two of your home, or even your garden (if you are lucky to have one)?

Sherston Plein Air Painting #3 - looking up the High Street

Sherston plein air painting #3

Sherston, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A third painting from my summer day trip to local village Sherston.  Love the bunting out in the street and a great tool to link two sides of the street from a composition point of view.  I normally avoid painting cars side on, but here I think it works by not making a big feature of them with all the trimmings and wheel arches and so on.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Steps- Iron Acton Village

Steps Iron Acton

Iron Acton, UK, 15" x 11"

I took a few photos very quickly of a local village to me in the UK, Iron Acton, and this was an outcome of one of those photos.  I liked the steps, a little light hitting the tops and the old stone wall.  The shadows were going in the right direction as well.
