#47 'Frensham Little Pond' 6x8"
I waited till the fog had cleared where we live and drove the 15 minutes to this pond. It was still foggy but actually looked really atmospheric and pretty. By the time I was ready to paint a lot of the fog had cleared but I still kept it quite tonal. I simplified the tree shapes and little house. The reeds were a a lovely yellow ochre colour - which I mixed with my three primary colours.
It felt a very tranquil spot even with the many dogs and people passing and I will definitely do more in this area.
