Two Derbyshire Landscapes (x poxt from Landscapes)

I've never posted in here before!
I've just started doing plein air and landscapes, and found some 7cm x 9cm canvases. So, I painted two small landscapes from my walks in Derbyshire where I live, in oil paints;

Nice. Love the colours and the way you've painted these. The ruins in the first and the windswept foreground creates the atmosphere, accentuated by the skies in both pieces. Like them both alot. Lawrence.

Beautiful sense of movement in both. Love the skies too.

Glad you showed them here too!

Ask, and you will receive.

I did these two today, both taken from old paper photographs that I found. One is a Scottish river scene, quite close to the original photo. The second is more of an imagining, with a photo used for light reference.

They all look very spaceous, and your color schemes are very moody.

I love your style! The river is my favorite. There's something about that I find so appealing.

Re: Two Derbyshire Landscapes (x poxt from Landscapes)

Thank you all, for the lovely comments. I just picked up even more of these tiny canvases, and they even come with mini easels! So, got loads more to do, taken a few photos locally for inspiration while out walking. My partner and I are going to Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get even more photos (it's a gorgeous medieval town).

Sadly, we spent five hours queuing to get in somewhere, so I didn't get to take any photos as me and my partner were both tired and stressed. But I will be doing more Derbyshire landscapes soon.
