For these paintings I wanted to be brave with the colours and try to maintain abstraction in the brushwork.
The colours in this piece make me think of Monsieur Monet, particularly the distant background.
This was worked from a photo reference I took on a visit to North Wales.
Finally a scene from France. My photo reference didn't do justice to this landscape, I did my best to try and remember all the warmth and colours that I felt and saw that summer evening in France.
At the end of June I will be going back to France, so hoping to inject some of this energy and colour into my plein air Work.
