It's been ages!

Yes, it's been a long time since I posted here. Anyway, this is my favourite plein air painting from what turned out to be a really good summer this year in Wexford (South East Ireland). I had to stand waist high in prickly thistles to paint this unusual view of the little fishing village of Slade.

Summer Afternoon, Slade
(10" x 12" Oil on MDF Board)

Oh my, that is glorious! I especially like your use of atmospheric perspective. The gradation in the sky is lovely, and I love the misty quality of the building in the background. Great job!

Re: It's been ages!

An excellent harmony of brush strokes, value and color. I can't see anything that appears to be over worked or overly smoothed/blended which is what I strive for and is a hard thing for me to achieve in my paintings.

Thanks Contumacious. The vagaries of the Irish summer probably help, as it makes me work fast, even when it's sunny - because usually it doesn't last too long! No time for overworking then.
