sizing up the sky my walks have gained another purpose; I am consciously looking for visual material in a different way because I have started trying to paint landscapes. this being Norfolk, the sky tends to dominate and I am happy on days when the clouds have some drama, or they interact with the basic elements of the Norfolk fieldscape – treeline – texture – in an interesting way, or the light illuminates the land in a special way. I am helped in this by the app I use for taking photos with my iphone. it makes up for the juggling act one has to do between land and sky. it is impossible to balance the photograph, sometimes the sunlight lights the foreground though. this is about my favourite view because the detail on that horizon is so rich. however my painting technique has not caught up with my ambition yet.
