You’ll have to take my word for it but blimey it was bright. Dazzled by the brightness of the light and the almost complete removal of colour here I sat to tackle it in oil pastel. I have a problem I wish to address when it comes to bright light and colour. Although the bushes here are clearly green too often, I find myself over using colour. In this sketch I battled through the heat and light to represent what I saw I probably went too far the other way. It’s a useful study, despite the final piece being somewhat uninteresting in composition.
Looking into the distance, at a small group of houses on Vitosha I had a small window of 19:50 and 20:20 to get some work in before the sky went orange and the trees lost colour. Will have to return to this later 😉
