Waking Up Oils on canvas board 4 x 4 inches
This is an awesome moment...the fact that I saw it at this early hour is incredible. The birds were singing their hearts out...the colours and glow were spectacular and I was privileged to be there. Our little village of Broxholme in rural Lincolnshire at 4.30 am in July. One for the record book.
One of my great pleasures when painting is to loosely state the image rather than render tight detail. I like the spontaneity of it all and when I feel the image is about right I shout in my ear...'walk away'.
This time I refrained from returning to add that little bit more and locked the studio door.
