Pushing techniques further in the studio

After visiting the Mall Galleries on Saturday and looking around the ING Dicerning Eye exhibition I was left feeling inspired. I particularly enjoyed paintings by Peter Brown, Bill Dean, Roger Dellar and David Curtis.  Unfortunately I couldn't get out to paint but I did take a couple of hours to practice in the studio from some photographs I had taken earlier this year.    Again, I was trying to concentrate on tone, colour harmony and colour temperature.  I am pleased with the results, although I don't feel the photos do the painting justice, but can't wait to get back outside next weekend.
