Sunset Meadow etc.

Hey guys!

Here's the stuff I've been working on recently. Firstly, a speed paint I did over the last couple of evenings:

Some very quick (10 mins each?) Edgar Payne studies. I've been working my way through his book, Composition of Outdoor Painting, and I'm making a concerted effort to be more deliberate about how I study and use colour. The book is full of useful info so I recommend picking it up if you can find a copy.

And some little scribbles for some previous works and a couple o' head doodles:

More soon, Cheers!

Cheers guys!

estevaolucas: Thanks dude. I'm definitely glad I'm doing these studies and reading about his approach to colour.

Ben Newman: Thanks, Ben! Hope you are doing well!

Aidan: Cheers! It doesn't feel like I'm making much progress most of the time so I'm glad there's some positive change visible from the outside.

Peter Oedekoven: I'll keep working if you keep visiting! Thanks.
