Peregrine, Ynys Hir

Mild and windy with breaks in the cloud. The teal I had calmly been painting were suddenly flushed by a peregrine which flew into the sun (partly why it may not of struck) drawing my attention to the landscape at my back. After several days struggling to paint green landscapes in the studio I made it my focus to capture the rich green (cb+aur -dark: wb=aur) pasture glowing in the light as well as the peregrine silhouetted above.
