Essex Wood: May

By Sally Pudney on 6th June 2016

I’m a bit late getting this completed, but fortunately I made my May visit to the wood straight after the Festival finished and before I went to Wiltshire, so I had the drawings and photos I needed, and I’ve been working hard the last few days to get this done. Each day when I stopped painting I took a photo – it makes rather interesting viewing to see the stages developing!

Day 1 - a lot of drawing and thinking but not much paint!

Day 2

Day three - the board is covered in paint, but there's still lots to do!

If you compare this with the finished painting below you will see quite a few changes; look at the line of the path, the trunk of the tree on the left, the thick band of bluebells, and the detail in the grass and the foreground shadows.

And this morning I delivered 20 paintings, 10 canvas prints and 110 cards to the Naze Tower Gallery at Walton on the Naze, ready for my exhibition which starts next Saturday.

The Private View evening is next Saturday – if you live in the area and would like to come, leave me a comment or drop me an email  to sally@sallypudneyartist.co.uk with your postal address and I’ll get an invitation out to you.

Hope you’ve been able to enjoy the sunshine today! 🙂
