Another evening sketch, this time concentrating on a layer of clouds close to the horizon and the associated colors found at this time of the day. I purposely kept the colors of the landscape subdued and used a harmonious palette throughout. Although I consider these sketches finished works in their own right, I do them most often as a kind of experiment, some develop into larger works, some into a series of their own. But all through I try and capture the feeling that I have for the landscape, and the simple joy I feel when I'm out painting. This oil is 9" x 12" (20cm x 30cm), private collection.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
