Sledging at Belmont tower



Sledgers at Belmont tower, Grantham
Oil on canvas 14" x 18"

Here's the studio version of 'Sledgers', starring my own son in the foreground! I hope you like it, it really pleased me to do it. I loved painting the original at the time, but I feel this is a better painting. I hope I have managed to keep the freshness of the plein air piece, I think I have. I was careful to keep the sketchy treatment of the figures. The nice thing about painting this version in the studio is that I could better consider where to place the figures.

In case you missed it back then, this is the fun video of the painting day!

  1. J'aime les deux versions... Cependant dans celle que vous avez peinte en atelier me semble plus "mijoté" ! Il y a aussi le mouvement qui me semble plus présent. j'aime.
