River Nadder at Salisbury water meadows (2) (A4 acrylic on acrylic board) (Unframed)
Having really enjoyed painting the first of what I anticipate will be three smaller compositions of The River Nadder at Salisbury Water Meadows,, I thought I might now indulge myself in what is now the second composition in this smaller format. I particularly like doing these as The Water Meadows are very pleasing to the eye as well as being very tranquil
I’ve noted before, that it’s strange how when you start a painting you have a firm idea in your mind of how you want to paint it, and how you want it to look. As I wrote, with the Llanstaffan painting this worked pretty well. With this one, it was not so bad, except I disliked the foliage in the left foreground
Once again, that doesn’t mean that I’m displeased with the outcome, I think it’s OK, but it has more foreground than I intended. As you know, I suspect it’s the nature of the composition that subconsciously determines the outcome.
Let’s assume that’s so, as I prepare for the next one, a small oil!
