Under a bridge in the rain, Monsal Trail.

Under a bridge in the rain, Monsal trail. Summer 2021. Oil (and rain) on canvas. 40 x40cm.
A plien air painting! Quite a situation, stung by stinging nettles, umbrella in free hand, brush in the other, children abseiling from the bridge near me. The green! A truly beautiful part of England. I’ve painted there before in acrylics, oil paint was more problematic but more rewarding. I was worked on at home as I wanted to finish the ‘front’ of the painting. My first Impressionist work.

I could spend months painting this half mile stretch of Derbyshire.

The work as it was that rainy day, the kit, where I was (under the bridge), what I could see and the painting without a frame.
