River Nadder at Salisbury water meadows (A4 acrylic on acrylic board) (Unframed)
Having really enjoyed painting the 8 x 10 oil of Llansteffan, I thought I might indulge myself in a few more smaller format paintings. I particularly like doing these in oil, and I have more oils planned, but for this next one, I opted for A4 and acrylic.
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. With the Llanstaffan paintitng this worked pretty well. With this one, it didn’t.
That doesn’t mean that I”m displeased with the outcome, I think it’s generally OK, but it has more detail than I intended. 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!
