7x5in  oil on canvas board  90.

This was done with a palette knife and it is partially imaginary.
With this type of diffused light I made sure that I made close value changes. Without bright sun there are no distinct contrasts and shadows, only gentle transitions of different tones.

  1. Wow, looks like you had a lot of fun with this, I'm always encouraged by your confident approach and bold application of paint. I often want to use the palette knife but somehow lack the courage
