#221 'Chalk Path, The Trundle' 8x10"

The light was diffused when I arrived but got stronger as I started which was easier. 
I have been using a homemade viewfinder recently which helps compose the composition (previously I've used my phone & taken pics) The viewfinder helps with what subject areas to include, which format - square, landscape or portrait. Plus horizon line level. The horizon was very hazy, no sea or the Isle of Wight showing. Just an orange strip.

I was at the top of quite a steep long path, and it was busy! Cylist, runners, dog walkers. Everyone saying hello and I had to stop myself giving the runners encouragement 'nearly there don't stop....' :-)


  1. Looking at this painting I realised I like paths as much as I like boats in a picture. My favourite so far of the Trundle series.

  2. Seeing your painting makes me resolve to make more use of my viewfinder. I love the way the light plays on the landscape and the path leads one into the picture. Lovely feeling of light and space.
