I have been out painting at Ruskin’s View early this morning. I started an oil painting yesterday in the afternoon and by the time I had finished working the sun was behind me. This meant that all the greens were blending into each other and I was struggling to get any definition. So this morning the light was coming in from my right, giving me some good shadow areas and nice contrasting shapes. There is still plenty of work to be done on it, but I’m a lot happier with the direction it is now taking.
