Painting No 4 - Tring Summit, Grand Union Canal

I'm least happy with this from my attempts to date. Again I was trying to be too ambitious as I was trying to capture a hazy sunlight filtering through the trees and, as you see, failing miserably.

The two figures here are my first attempt at people and whilst they aren't brilliant they're not a failure either. I even got the black blob to look like our dog as well. Result.

I think I need to be a bit more bold and try a larger canvas (this one's a 8" x 10") but maybe try a simpler lighting effect.
