The Old Palace, Ely
You may remember my plein air painting above from my recent trip to The Old Palace in Ely (You can read about my day and creative battle here)
Before leaving the palace, the rebel in me had one last attack of bravery and applied textured foliage to the piece with a knife.
This is how I brought the piece home:
On returning home I could see everything was a little 'wonky' probably due to my easel being too small for my canvas and me having to use it backwards which gave everything an unfortunate slant.
This morning I had half an hour or so free before my class arrived, so I set about straightening it all up and then, with no reference, allowed my creativity to dance.
Here is the result as it stands at this time:
...and a close up...
I'm feeling happier about it, I had alot of fun this morning and got so lost in the piece I didn't hear my class pull into the yard.
