Landscape Drawing – Chiltern Hills UK March 2013

Landscape - Chiltern Hills 2013 - 3

Mixed media: graphite, coloured pencil, crayon, pastel, acrylic paint on white paper, March 2013

It was still wintry in the Chiltern Hills over the Easter holidays and the distant landscape of gentle hills and woods looked drab on first view, but there was colour everywhere, especially as the grey cloud lifted and one’s eyes started to pick out the intense subtleties all around, especially the colouring that new buds give to the twiggy outlines of the still leafless trees. I used a tight earthy palette of colours for this drawing.

    1. Yes it is the one bit of hope! It’s sooo cold again today. I was in the Chiltern Hills this morning and it was windy and cold but at least the sun was shining! I will be glad when it is warmer to wrk out doors.
