Well some you win and some you lose. This started out as my first plein aire painting (from the safety of my back garden). I managed to get the sky, house and main bushes done in about 20 minutes when I received a long phone call. At the end of the call the sun had gone and it was freezing. So, I decamped to indoors which is where it all went downhill.
Using a photo of the scene I'd taken when the lighting was just right I continued to finish the painting. Maybe the subject matter was too fiddly but I reckon I'm still unable to back off from the detail. I think I'd lost interest in the end and rushed off the left hand side of the painting. The end result you can see above.
