Cuckmere Shadows - stage 1


 This might well be the first of two versions of this view of the Cuckmere Valley from High and Over in East Sussex. I am continuing with the Tonalist theme for a while with this and possibly the next one both being more obviously tonal than previous ones over the years. This one is planned to be relatively light, probably based around a red/orange - green/blue complementary and the next one darker. We will see, my plans often change over my breakfast coffee...

This is the tonal underpainting stage using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and applied with a small bristle brush and a rag.

Oil on linen 20" v 16".
