Here's a small plein air of the infamous Fenland sky with a little land to ground it.
Approx 10 mins, no pencil straight in with the brushes on canvas sheet with Finity.
Sensational Anita, I cannot believe you could create such beauty in 10 mins...amazing

Lots of movement in that sky......Are these quickies exercises in loosening-up or a whole new direction for you?

You always do such lovely detailed work that I was really curious about what you could do in 10 minutes, and it's beautiful!

I love this! I am personally drawn to very low horizons too.

Thankyou all for your encouraging comments. So pleased energy and movement were mentioned in your replies, I feel this is one of the advantages I have noticed working from life.
Audrey this is part of an information bank project I am working on, I go around with my sketchbooks sketching anything and everything in my sight in the hope of building a mental reference bank I can hopefully rely on when completing future pieces aswell as improving my drawing skills. What influence this will have on my works is a mystery to even myself at this stage. :D
