WINTER MARSH SUNSET
I have had this painting in my studio for some time now as I'm planning on doing a larger version of it. I often do small studies like this as a kind of sketch and to see how the elements of the scene work together. There is often a bit of adjusting to the values etc before I am happy with the finished study. Some of them simply don't work and I end up painting over them. On reflection, I think I'll change the composition slightly, the position of the foreground bushes and perhaps the sky as well - so a bit of work to be done when I paint the larger one. This study is 5" x 7", oil on canvas.
