Edge of the Bay Oils on canvas board 4 x 4 inches SOLD
Sheltered at the edge of the Bay and ideal for a walk.
Soft and gentle colours for an end of day imaginative sketch.
Disasters and how to move on.
I have come to terms with the fact that if I insist on painting
I shall experience frustration and failure.
Yesterday was such an occasion and three attempts to finish my 8 x 12 inch work ended in scraping paint off the canvas. Each time the painting became overworked and messy.
Wiping the paint completely off the board I was left with a grey/blue base which will be an undercoat for another subject. To finish on a positive feeling I took a small 4 x 4 inch canvas board with a one inch brush. It was time for sketching without pressure and this little piece came together quickly. It gave me my confidence back when I thought I had lost it.
