My landscape process – a day of acrylic sketching.

I entered the studio this morning with the hint of an idea for the day – small postcard sized acrylics on 225gsm paper. I wanted to capture the landscape in a quick and spontaneous manner, keeping my colours limited and reducing the composition to it’s simplest form using one size bristle brush for the most part. It was a journey, but I feel I reached a point of resolution for the day. The whole exercise left me wanting to paint more which is great, but also searching for fresh compositions…for next time.

Below are further studies completed on the day.
