Altamont House Paint-Out

We had a group paint-out to the beautiful Altamont House and Gardens in Co Carlow yesterday,. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day, but unfortunately limited painting time due to a late start and early closing time. Still I managed to do one painting. The photo has come out a bit blotchy for some reason. In particular the softer passages of the painting are less textured than they appear on the photo.

I like the way that you've created your own light conditions and got that lovely illumination on the pedestal. I can imagine that it existed at some stage during the process.
