These are the last couple of plein air paintings I did, late August - early September when the evenings were already getting a bit shorter. They were painted about a week apart and less than a mile apart but they look completely different. 'Afternoon walk' was done on a cool, blustery day as a change from sunny day painting. The tones are a lot closer in the flat light, but it was a useful exercise.
       'Summer Afternoon' was painted over three 90 minutes sessions on consecutive days, from 4.30pm while 6pm. By then the shadows had gone and the light completely different. I touched it up at home the next day - its amazing how many nuances of colour and tone you can remember after standing there for 4 or 5 hours.
