Afternoon Light, Regents Canal, 6" x 8", Oil on board (Plein Air)

This little painting was done in the afternoon at a lovely place near Kings Cross St Pancras, called, Regents Canal.

Afternoon Light,. Regents Canal, 6" x 8", Oil on Board

I only discovered the place when I was out painting  with my friends and I was thinking of somewhere to paint. I love painting water, so when I got to Kings Cross St Pancras, I saw a sign that showed directions on how to get to a Canal. I simply followed the directions till I got to this lovely spot.

The day was brilliant and the reflections and trees in background just highlighted the beauty of the place.

A picture of the scene!

I long for places like this!
