March on the Common


7"X5" Graphitint pencil on paper



When you paint the same thing over and over again it is really hard to come up with new names. I have so many "Noon on the Common" pictures and I was too lazy to figure out which number this one should be.

The light is very special at this time of year, with wonderful shadows cast by the bare trees, even at noon they are still quite long. I find that these Derwent Graphitint pencils work very well for winter sketches, their muted, low-key colours seem to match the landscape perfectly.
