After Avebury, as it was a bit drizzle today I had to have a go at Stonehenge. Also had a chance to use my latest purchase a ‘stay wet palette’ Acrylic on hardboard
This is quite an unusual composition of Stonehenge with the low horizon , large dramatic sky, the fire in the background and shadows produced by the light falling on the stones. Also conceptual- destruction of the earth, but the stones still stand. Really like it!
I agree with Sue the light is very dramatic. But I do think the.clouds look too heavy. The far colours are lovely and give a great sense of depth, but the nearer clouds are painted a little too heavy. It maybe the very dark background under them or the heavy white paint. How did you find the stay wet palette?
I love the light coming through the stones. Lots of interesting detail.
v dramatic, well done!
