An Ochre Study with Windfarm
Oil on Board 24x20"
The weather is just as you would expect in Scotland in January though the rain seems a bit wetter and the winds that bit stronger.
The worst part of this time of year, if you paint, is the shorter daytime light. By 4 o'clock it's already getting dark and I don't find daylight bulbs all that sucessful. In proper daylight the colours always seem too fierce hough I know many artists seem to like them.
Working away on the series of paintings with a predominantly ochre palette of the hills in this part of Scotland though I've started adding a bit of a windfarm or two
which can now be seen in the landscape.
