The Cherry Orchard – work in progress

cherry-orchard-autumn-sm-p1040214

Work in progress. This is part way through a painting of the cherry orchard in the morning light. I was drawn to the way the early light catches the tops of the cherry trees. It’s an effect that doesn’t last long, and doesn’t occur every day. Hopefully I’ll get a few more chances to paint this before the leaves fall.
Oil on board. 8x10in, 20x25cm.

Five minute sketch at Rye HarbourA five minute sketch in oil on board. 6×8 inches

At the weekend Karl Terry invited a group of friends to join him for a day’s painting. He arranged access to a private stretch of the river at Rye in East Sussex then, in the evening, showed off his skills at the barbeque.

The 5 minute sketch above was the result of a challenge.  We all went over the time limit – this one took me about 10 minutes.

 

Thanks Karl 🙂
