Crook Farm
Oil on Board,  9"x12"
Done on location. The afternoon was really cold and I went down to the shore again. As I arrived the water was dropping from the high tide line. The sky was grey and the light was flat and everything desaturated of colour. This time I took my stool so the perspective's a little lower. After about an hour and a half I was thoroughly chilled and ready to get home for a hot brew.

The Old Farm, Lune Estuary 
Oil on board,  10"x12"
It's been very misty for the past week or so especially down on the estuary. I worked on this one a bit after the plein air start, mainly to add a bit of definition and contrast to the foreground elements.
