Mill pond, Lode Mill, 2


Pencil 5"x8"

This was sketched almost from the same spot as the last one – just looking to the left. I like the possibilities of this composition and since I took some reference photos this is going to get worked up into a bigger painting. I seem to be painting in the evenings quite a lot at the moment. The lighting is more interesting than in the middle of the day, and if the sun is out – as is the case here, the edges of building are caught with interesting highlights. Tomorrow I will post another oil sketch also done late in the afternoon (yesterday actually) with just this effect from clear sunlight coming into the picture from low in the sky to the left of the picture.
