Towards the Cape, 29th April 2017, 4.20pm

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

A day of rapidly changing light coupled with a gusty, buffeting wind making for challenging painting conditions. The rhododendron bushes are starting to flower now. In the valley below the strong purple colours of the blooms are muted and cooled by distance, yet when catching the light still manage to provide a nice foil to the increasingly bright acid yellow-greens of trees bursting into bud.
