This canvas is 102 x 152cm, which is at the upper end of what the French box easel can safely handle. Fortunately today is sunny and quite still, as even a small breeze can make painting a canvas this size 'en plein air' a nightmare.

I've primed the canvas black as it's a good backdrop to intensify the colour of the rusting metal sheeting.

I'm trying to paint this canvas from the back to the front to increase the 3D effect. I painted the sky first, so the Power Station appears as a silhouette.

Sunset comes all too quickly in midwinter. The White Bay Power Station briefly turns golden in the last rays of the setting sun.
By the time I've packed up my easel, night has already fallen, making it even more difficult to put my large and very wet canvas into the back of my car without smearing it.
