I have finished two painting’s in the new Sonning collection and I am halfway through the third painting of French Horn in Sonning and one of the cottages opposite which will hopefully be finished this weekend ready for the big reveal. Last Saturday I painted in the boat in Grey which I mixed myself using ultramarine blue, white and burnt umber. I then worked on the bridge, painting in the railings and defining the top and bottom of the bridge and the trees in the background. I moved on to going over the reflection of the trees in the water and I felt satisfied it was complete and set it aside to dry.
I poured out white paint and applied another coat to the foreground of Sonning Bridge to give the grass the appearance of being frosty and/or snowy, whichever way you want to interpret it, after all you viewers are the ones who finish my work off with your interpretations. I covered the tree on the left with snow and worked into the willow Tree and it’s reflections in the water.
This weekend I will be working on the last two painting’s, as I mentioned earlier in the blog and I will share them with you next week.
