Study by the Cricket Till Oils on canvas board 7 x 5 inches
The Cricket Till runs beside the River Till and is a small stream collecting water from the surrounding farmland. This part is on my right as I walk up to the steep river bank.
Occasionally the water is covered with bright green duck weed and gives the appearance of a narrow path. The sun was shining on the grass bank as it meandered to the right.
I was quite pleased with how my tonal study had progressed and intended letting it dry to add further colours to the red, blue and white.
However, I decided to begin another painting of the same scene and keep this study for posting on-line. I rarely post a monochrome tonal study as a 'stand-alone' piece but I like the simplicity. Tomorrow will show the addition of yellow to my limited palette.
