A busy weekend only left me this evening to make a start on the back scene. I wanted the feel of a breezy summers day with high clouds and decided the impressionist look would likely be the best approach. So it was out with the acrylics and lots of big sploshes of very light blues (I had to lighten the first application as it felt too dark and rich and then using streaks of white brushed in with a bit of sky blue and a small amount of grey to give depth and shadow to the clouds.
Here is the result so far:

Probably needs a bit of touching up in daylight when I can compare colours better.
The next section will be the hills. This will be a bit trickier to get the right shades and detail. I'll probably reduce my brush size to assist.
