I’ve finally got around to doing some more painting recently.
This is the Kennet and Avon canal near Limpley Stoke. I was trying to capture the patterns of intense light and shade caused by the sunlight falling through the trees.
It’s not 100% successful but I think I did manage to get the feeling of walking down a tunnel of trees that you get along the canal. It’s a lovely place to walk and was particularly magical on the day last autumn on which this picture is based.
I am also pleased with the colours. I did try and paint the canal once before, it ended up looking very brown, which I avoided this time.
