Romney Marsh View

Romney Marsh View
160mm x 220mm oil on panel

A view from the Romney Marshes, the flat lands in the extreme south eastern corner of England which is
the area I grew up in and have lived in for most of my life. This wonderful winters day was not painted on the spot as sadly that day I had no time as I was on the way to meet clients. As I passed this spot the clouds cast a shadow over the distant downs and the setting sun created this wonderful light opportunity, Catherine and I were amazed at its beauty.  I just had to stop, no kit with me just a camera, and a valuable lesson learned. I do hope that in this sketch I have captured the essence of the moment and will convey that into a new larger version later.
