Studio Musings...

My aim is to capture something of the light on land and sea.
Pulling the paint down with my brush gives the effect of shine on water.

I painted this very quickly over a violet underpainting.
Little parts are showing through which gives a cool feeling to the image.

Roughly rendered to give an impression rather than fine detail.

Spring has arrived.
I have moved back into my garden studio this week.
Painting out there I can separate easel work from housework.

No distractions...just me and the oils.

New work this week...

I am posting some photos of work on paper.
Using the oils thinly there is a gentle feeling of atmosphere.

Watercolour paper is a beautiful surface for oils.
Twice gessoed, it has a robust surface for scrubbing the oils around.
The slightly dimpled surface makes a textured look when scraped back.

I am an energetic painter. 
 With a one inch wide brush I can make marks quickly.
Speed is an essential part of keeping my work loose and fresh.

Studio Musings...

The third study about warmth.
Again, the orange underpainting shows through the finished piece.

Textural marks in the foreground give a suggestion of shore and water's edge.
