'The Queen's Gate',

The under-painting on this canvas is a rich indigo for the shadows. I drew using the usual charcoal and pastel for the pink and green. I needed to see the colour balanced against the deep shadows. I am very pleased with the mark making of the lane and I hope I can keep it going.

The feeling of bleached sunlight in this is super Lorna, agree with you about the mark making, especially at the base of the canvas, very interesting :)
