Towards the Cape, Twilight, 2nd November 2016, 5.20pm

Plein air, oil on board apprx. 15 x 20 cm

An attempt to try and get something of the sky colours after sunset. I fell into a common painting trap in the rapidly approaching darkness and pitched the landscape in too high a key — something that can be compensated for when painting during the growing light of sunrise.  I rarely re-work these small sketches preferring to let them stand as is — warts and all!
