A Day in Chiswick

A Lovely day in Chiswick on the Thames.


Hammersmith Bridge from Chiswick. The tide comes in very quick so the water was soon at my toes! 16in by 10in oil


Another one where the tide was out to get me, I had to retreat 10 ft up into the road as I painted. 10in by 8in oil.


Hammersmith Bridge again. I didn't get all this done as the sun moved until it was straight into my face, so plein air to the left but only got the darks of the bridge done and finished it off later. 62.867% on the pleinairometer!

A trio of wonderful paintings, Rob!

Nice atmospheric perspective in all three.

Re: A Day in Chiswick

Something to note every time you post. You handled the water differently in each painting. It seemed to work every time and fit the rest of the painting. I think that I like the last best just for the transitions from one color to another in the water. Gary

Wonderful series of paintings! I'm getting anxious for somewhat warmer weather to get out and do some plein air pieces.

Re: A Day in Chiswick

Thanks all, Don't wait for warmer weather, wrap up warm and paint anyway. Winter light is some of the best all year because the sun is low in Northern climes. You don't get as cold as you might expect.

Jaw-dropping work as always, Rob! Your placement of the birds is just perfect and the light ... so beautiful in all of them!

Re: A Day in Chiswick

Rob,
As an infrequent visitor to this forum, I haven't had the pleasure of coming across your work before. I'll surely look for you in the future. What a wonderful trio of plein air paintings: each one a different lesson in handling light. I'm particularly taken with the cold, crisp winter scene in "Hammersmith Bridge From Cheswick". On your blog you commented that this painting is made better by a frame. I had to smile. Artists are often their own worst critic. This beautiful work stands out from the crowd all on its own.

Keep Painting!
Bruce
