|Farleigh Wallop!, acrylic on board, 2 x 4 foot|
It shows the view of Basingstoke from Farleigh Wallop, a village to the south of the town, beyond the M3. I wanted to make the image bold and bright, as befits the late summer's day it shows and the vibrant town laid out before the viewer.
The followng images show a few snapshots of the painting's progress, starting with a sketch...
|Earth-toned paint-drawing on the board|
|Excessively exuberant (and fun!), dribbly, splatty underpainting in roughly complementary colours|
