Hazy Spring Morning, Suffolk

By Sally Pudney on 4th July 2016

A new painting on the 2016 gallery page today – Hazy Spring Morning, Suffolk is bound for the Haylett’s Gallery in Maldon at the end of the month. This peaceful lane, on a morning of hazy sunshine in May, is near Walsham le Willows in West Suffolk.

So, here is how it developed, from my ‘thirds’ beginning (see last post) . . . .


. . . to putting in the distant trees and sky . . .

Thirds 2

. . . and then working on the foreground, starting with the tree – the bulk of the trees foliage is a third of the total picture width from the right picture edge . . .

. . . and finally I added the cow parsley, the detail of the puddles, and did a bit of tonal adjusting to the right field and tree, and the telegraph poles . . .

So there it is – finished!

Hope your week has got off to a good start, too 🙂
