I was keen to do a small, wide format of the view from Whaddon at twilight, whilst the fields were nice and ripe. It was quite a challenge to get the balance of colours and values. As ever, the light seemed to change almost every time I looked up but the hardest part was getting the sky colours to read sensibly as paint. I found I didn’t need to actually paint the sun as bright as it is (which would be impossible anyway!) by controlling the colours around it.
