A watercolour painting of White Horse Hill – part II

Here’s the first stage of painting – just doing most of the foreground with variations on the greenery.

This is a view that I know fairly well – it is from just above the White Horse chalk figure but I realise that this will probably appear a bit abstract. The process of painting wet-in-wet also tends to add to the abstractedness of it – but maybe that is no bad thing.

The Horse is nowadays mostly fenced off – and this is from just above that fencing. It seems that each year a group of volunteers go up to maintain and repair the chalk horse – and hopefully they have time to admire the view too.
