Quick Seascape

mistseaI had two tones of blue sitting in my fridge as a remnant of the studies I made last week. Too much precious paint to discard I thought. As I observed the paint was starting to crust over I knew it was now or never. I garbed a 15x20cm pice of canvas paper and a pallet knife and spread and scraped the partially congealed oil colours in till I was happy. I added a little white for clouds and sea spry and a touch of orange which are supposed to be distant lights on the main land trough misty skys. I don’t know if that’s apparent! it is to me.

I wanted to recorded this is the blog as I am impressed with the texture achieved by leaving the paint to firm up. In the earlier seascape studies I found the paint to lose for my liking and to achieve the effects I want.

Another observation is how much happier I am with this one as apposed to the more planed sea and cliff painting I did before. Spontaneity is key to getting the energy right. After all the sea and skys them self never stay still.
