Thorpe Cloud Painting in Red

I’ve finished my red Thorpe Cloud painting after various revisions. The first stage was like this:


The second stage was like this:


The final stage was like this:

Thorpe Cloud, Midsummer's Day. Oil on canvas. 100 x 162 cms.

Thorpe Cloud, Midsummer’s Day

I like the red, warm theme. It was difficult to keep enough red without the painting becoming dark, which is why I changed the second stage to the final stage, adding more light areas but losing some of the red.
