Pochade at The Gate

Stunning light this morning, so I took a walk up ontop of BlackCloud hill and painted the view down over the Gate using my little old antique Pochade box. Quite a different experience to using the sketchbox easel, which is sturdier and larger. The little pochade is only 250 x 160 mm[ 10 x 6 inches. A good exercise in only painting what you need to and leaving all the extraneous stuff out.
