It started enthusiastically , then came the clouds !, so Pierre had to return the next day ! I had only just started when the sun disappeared again!
After a series of mad bursts of activity during every bright patch , the
shadows finally changed too much and I had barely finished the head.
Disappointingly , I had to finish the study with the aid of photographs.
I will post the finished painting soon .

I consider myself a tonalist painter , but have been exaggerating colour
in order to convey the effect of bright sunlight.
This painting was done completely from life and from my colour
sketch posted a few weeks back.It measures 28 x 20 inches.
