Here's one of my original pen sketches:
and following is the planned composition drawn with pen onto a sheet of acrylic canvas, as I shall be framing it with mount and behind glass. You will see I have put the buildings behind trees I selected from a wood on higher ground which we sketched whilst seated on a bench with a bronze figure and dog beside us (quite spooky making you keep looking round to see who was nearby)!! I've also added some deer from photos taken in the deerpark.
This following image is an early stage of development using Atelier Interactive acrylic paints, as it was so hot when I started painting these first layers I needed to keep spraying them with a mist water spray to keep the pigments pliable and moist - a great feature of this particular acrylic paint.
I'll keep you posted as to how it develops.
