Since painting windmills on location in Norfolk, I’ve enjoyed tacking this unusual subject matter. Earlier this year I travelled to Holland to work on some painting commissions for a client. The client wanted some scenes that were typically Dutch. My research took me to this particular scene where I did two small watercolours on Arches watercolour blocks.
I also made some charcoal studies in my moleskine sketchbook which are great for carrying about to make quick studies and for taking notes.
Using the on the spot studies, my own reference photographs and my experience in painting skies, I’ve produced this original watercolour which is now available as a limited edition print titled “Windmills, Early Morning Light”.
