15 Minute Fen
This sketch was completed in 15 minutes, plein air, smack bang outside of my studio during two crafty cigarette breaks while completing a painting commission. It's not perfect, it's not particularly brilliant either but it did remind me that you CAN capture the essence of a place in a very short time, so there is never an excuse not to! The Fens are constantly changing, I am grateful for that, the field infront of my studio has recently been ploughed over, changing the soft golden tones into deeply textured earthy browns.
