Shelburne from the flower bridge. Michele Clamp. Watercolor. 14”x11”

I’m getting behind with the blogs. There’s some stuff I need to put on that I’ve been procrastinating over but that can wait.

I painted this before. We’d visited Shelburne which is well worth a visit - especially for the flower bridge. This is a view from there which I’d always liked the composition of so why not give it another go?

As usual I’m in two minds about this. It was a bit of a struggle and I think the first version shown below was better. Darn.

The plan yesterday was to take the painting sticks out and paint on location.   The weather didn't play ball however and so we only took photos and this was done back at home.   Strictly speaking it's not quite finished but I was getting to the 'I'll just do this' stage and quit while I was ahead.   Not the most exciting of subjects maybe but fun nonetheless.

I even started with a value sketch.

And the original photo.
