From Arnside Knott
Oil on gessoed card,  6"x8"

A quick sketch from Arnside Knott this evening after work. The wind was blowing and getting more blustery as I worked. I was expecting rain but it held off. There were some superb effects of light which came and went far too quickly for me to capture. This is a hilltop which overlooks the river Kent estuary out to Morecambe Bay and gets fantastic evening light.
Looking at the painting again this evening I feel it needs more work separating the elements. However I'm not going to mess around with it. I achieved what I set out to do which was to explore the scene as a composition. I think this place has a lot of potential and is a site I can get to easily. I'll be back!
