Dedham Hall

Click Image to see larger version in my gallery

14 x 19 in  -  35 x 49 cm     Watercolor     Dedham Hall is an art and painting course venue in England on the boarder of Essex and Suffolk. John Yardley runs two courses there a year.

I took this ref photo while John was painting the hall last year. The heads in the photo are looking down towards his painting. I thought it was about time I had a go at this reference.

The painting has come out just about as I planned it, which is a good thing. Now that is done I think it's clear that I should either have been lighter on the John Yardley style greens, or stronger on at least the roofs of the building.

When painting this work I was not attempting to do it in a strong John Yardley style although clearly I have been influcenced. For those who are interested here is the painting that JOhn did last year.
