Cuckmere Shadow


Although this was meant to be a Tonalist painting, because I became intent on trying to get the landscape in sunlight to glow against the shadow it took it away from being a Tonalist painting... maybe the next one will be! Compositionally I tried to have three distinct bands of colour not being broken up with a foreground tree as I usually do, the placement of the clouds at left being the result of the original tonal underpainting wash-in when this was the last bit to go in and I decided I that I liked the placement of the light area as it was. 

This is a favourite landscape of mine, the Cuckmere Valley about half an hour from where I live.

Oil on linen 20" x 16".

There is a short step-by-step progress through this painting including the colours I used in previous posts on this blog.
