" Down the Valley "

9x 6 oil on panel £100

I painted this from the patio of " Greenacres" bed and breakfast here in Woolacombe , it has a stunning view down the valley, and on this morning it was especially pleasing. i started with an underpainting of mid-purple and then built up to the lights from the darks. It had a really tranquil feeling to it , especially as out of shot to the right, queues of beachgoers in their cars snaked down the hillside road to fill the beach carpark. One of this Summer's beautiful warm days.
