The Brissons, March 31st, 2019, 5.15pm

Plein air, oil on board apprx. 20x15cm

There’s been a lot of haze in the atmosphere over the past few days. This afternoon a layer of Orographic clouds formed over the coast being driven by the easterly winds, the local topography and temperature changes between land and ocean.

The entire cloud formation remained fixed overhead waxing and waning in intensity for a couple of hours filtering the afternoon sunlight over an area of several miles while skies beyond the layer of clouds remained clear. Very unusual conditions for this coastline where the normally clean, clear air lends a clarity to the far landscape as atmospheric perspective is relatively subdued.
