Elen - stage 5
That's as much as I can do on this visit to the studio, back on Friday and Saturday when I hope to finish the background. It's another painting that's hard to photograph, with the sunshine in the studio this morning giving it a more yellow cast. In the actual painting the sun isn't quite as clearly defined as it appears here. There will need to be some dark areas in the foreground for the lighting I have planned to work, the trick is not to make it too dark and use more subdued colours so that the top part of the painting glows with sunlight.
