Heybridge Sketch

I thought I would post an oil sketch I have recently completed from Heybridge.  The oil sketch was in preparation for a larger studio painting which I am planning to do soon.  

The painting in 40cm x 60cm and I was trying to capture a sense of breaking light.  The sun was out but it was quite cloudy, so every so often the light burst through the clouds and steadily made its way across the landscape spotlighting as it went.

I wanted to keep a painterly feel about the work and the thick texture of paint on the surface of the board was something I wanted to make the most of.

I am currently painting work for the East Anglian Group of Marine Artists next exhibition at Mandell's Gallery in Norwich from 1 June - 14 June - more details to follow.
