Good morning everyone. Well, I’ve had another busy week, the pace of my life really does seem to be speeding up now. So, unfortunately I haven’t had much time for art. Obviously, it’s all a question of balancing up my commitments. But, I appear to be out of practice! Anyway, I’d like to show you my latest small landscape in acrylic.
Incidentally, I painted this small scene without referring to a photo. But instead I used a small watercolour sketch done on the spot to jog my memory. In fact, this is a new approach for me, not using a photo. And I’m pleased to say that I was able to draw on memories of the country walk too. Again, quite an improvement for me, as my visual memory is not great.
The Sparkling Light in the Small Landscape
Anyway, I hope you can see that I tried to convey the damp mistiness of the far view to the hills. And the way the light sparkles in the moisture on the tree trunks and the leaves in the hedge. To be honest, I do remember that feeling of optimism at the beginning of a day’s walking on the moors. When you can’t quite give up believing that the the day will fine up. Despite the unpromising weather forecast you have just seen! (If you click here, you can see another rainy day painting)
However, you can still enjoy looking at this small landscape even if you can’t experience the hike. Because, this painting is for sale – acrylic on paper 7 by 10 inches, unframed and without a mount.

Very well done Margaret, yes, I see the misty air of the far away hills, a very nice effect for sure. Nice work!
Thank you, Francisco. I’m glad the effect I was after was effective.
You’re welcome Margaret, it certainly was.
Love the misty softness in your acrylic, Margaret, and the deft lightness in your watercolor! 😊
Thank you for your support, Felipe.
Lovely painting Margaret.
Thank you so much, Ally
You’re very welcome Margaret. I haven’t done any art work for several months. I have been occupied working on the Family Tree and more recently focusing on changing my nutritional intake to improve my health.
Good luck with your lifestyle changes!
