"Rees Valley" 8x10" Oil on Canvas board
What can I say about a place like this? Words fail me. Magnificent comes close.
There were four of us painting on this cliff top plus two boys running around with plenty of snow for snow fights. Another great day.
I didn't feel the same freedom as with the previous day's painting - I guess because this was a much trickier subject. Trying to squeeze this scene into a tiny 8x10" canvas bordered on blasphemy and as we were looking directly into the sun most of the time it made it very difficult to see the colors, so on the whole it was very challenging. It's the morning of the following day now and I'm writing this before we head out again to the same spot, but today we'll be going further up this valley and painting on the riverbed. Gotta go.
