Burnham Overy windmill, breezy day
Size: 31 x 51 cm
Status: For Sale
A painting where distance and scale play a big role. Also movement and energy in the sky, bush and grasses. It's often too windy to paint at this place, though I've managed it a couple of times (as you can see in the plein air gallery). The painting has a cool feel, which is sums up quite well what I wanted, with the land cast mostly in shadow, sun behind those scudding clouds. The windmill is set up on a rise just off the back of the saltmarsh near Burnham Overy Staithe. This is perhaps the smallest I've ever painted a focal point!
