Midday in the Valley, Ubud

Midday in the Valley, Ubud

Acrylic and Ink on Paper, 30 x 21 cm, 8-9/6/16

This piece was done from the same balcony as the previous painting, but facing down towards the river. It was much hotter as I was doing this picture and after the second session I had a little sun/heatstroke again! I am slowly learning that my English body wasn’t made for the tropical midday heat! Unfortunately I am a stubborn slow learner! The colours and tones of the thousands of trees in the valley changed throughout the day as the sun rose higher into the sky. I wanted to focus more on the tree in the foreground in this unfinished picture and I added Ink over the thinly applied Acrylic paint to add definition.
