Layers of colour.
Dune Oils on board 8 x 8 inches
Multi-coloured layers of the coastal dunes.
The last demonstration painting in my recent show.
I scrubbed the undercoat onto the board with a brush using transparent colours.
This gave me a vigorous, textured look to represent the grass and shrubs.
Opaque colours were added to block out parts of the composition
with sweeps of thicker paint suggesting sand and drift.
Some blue was placed in the lower part balancing the blues in the sky.
Expressive and abstracted...my view of the coast.
