Painting in the Samoens valley

 Early evening light and the shadows were moving rapidily in the Samoens valley. It's such a beautiful time of day to paint, but time was the essence. I decided to do a quick sketch to show mainly a few chalets, my aim was to capture the sunlight on the meadow before it disappeared. My other aim was to watch out for snakes in the grass! After earlier seeing one when I nearly stood on it while looking for a view to paint!!

The Pines are so colourful with mainy shades of Green towering above the small hamlet of Le Vivier. I added touches of  Pinks and purples into some of the buildings to help balance the painting.
