Fading Autumn Light, Near Ballyfinnane

oil on primed card 4" x 3¾"

Yesterday afternoon I went to visit friends who live a few miles up the hill above the town, I left there for home as the light was fading. The first frost of the year had been forecast and the cold air had formed a light patchy mist. I was annoyed with myself for forgetting my camera as there were some beautiful images of the last light trickling across the trees and the landscape. By the time I had figured out how to work the camera on my phone the light had all but gone but I did manage to capture one image of the vestiges of remaining light and have produced this small oil sketch from it.
