Capturing Wintry Light!

Norfolk is famous for its vast skies and stunning light and the winter season has so much to offer even on a very dull day! Mixing tones of various greys using Paynes grey, Ultramarine blue, Titanium White and a hint of purple does wonders for capturing the coastal light over the marshes.  This painting ‘Salty Marsh Sky’ shows how I’ve used these colours to depict a winter sky over the marshes at Stiffkey.  By working quickly and applying layers of thin paint either with a brush or palette knife an interesting sky effect can bring the drama of the sky to life!
