I started this on a Friends of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) plein air day.
|Standing under Richmond Bridge - its cool there!|
|8x10" study completed en plein air|
I mapped it in a underpainting of Burnt Sienna on site but then the group went to the pub and so it was abandoned till the studio...
Having just painted it once to do it again helped as I was familiar with the shape and colours. I made the boat large in scale to feature it and give a strong composition.
