Evening on the Forest ~ Acrylic and pastel on canvas (90 x 60cm)
I have been continuing to work on landscapes and was drawn to this view on the Ashdown Forest, as my husband and I strolled along this grassy track. It was gently lit with a beautiful peachy glow. I generally used Naples yellow, yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, and French ultramarine - keeping the palette simple, to ensure harmony and softness.
I used a little pastel again, as I love the immediacy of the strokes and have spray varnished it to protect the surface.
I am hoping to have this exhibited at the Ashdown Gallery, Forest Row soon.
