Sketching out on the Plain

Another lovely day out on the Plain.  Today greatly inspired by the Big clouds, the landscape lets you witness the forthcoming storms. These studies are helping me explore the weather and drama created by the movement of the clouds and the strong wind.

Study of Salisbury Plain Landscape

First impression of the landscape…. A massive sky with BIG fast clouds, you become part of the landscape as the wind whips past you, the warm yellow of the buttercups against the acid, bright yellow of the distant rape fields. The landscape lacks a focal point but has such depth and colour

Finished: 'Conversation with the collection’


The Amesbury Archer travelled from the Alps, he may have wondered if he would make it across the sea. I wouldn’t have wanted to make the journey.
