Behind Aldie Mill

A plein air painting of white houses and trees.

Behind Aldie Mill. 10x8, oil on linen panel. 2014

I found a nice view behind the old mill in Aldie quite by accident as I was walking around taking a few reference photos.  I painted this by the side of a small rill, huddled close to an old tree for shade, and if I moved just a few feet to either side the scene changed completely.

I did most of the painting on location and filled in some of the greens back in the studio.
