sleigh-ride into luminosity

Evening Prayer Brunswick Heads,  19 February, 2020, oil on canvas board, 30 X 25 cm

A gentle touch for this picture painted over a week ago. I liked it for its simplicity and its very simple colour harmony. 

Upon arriving at the small dune while unpacking my materials I give a quick look out at the sea. Quite often, I am  seized by a visual idea which pushes me into the session without much hesitation. But at other times I silently groan to myself if the sky looks leaden and absent of any luminosity.  On an evening (like above) it is a sleigh-ride downhill.
