Night Beckoning oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches £ 62 $ 75
Along the estuary...nightfall approaches.
Another day and another study at speed.
I hope tomorrow brings more time at my easel.
However, the upside of having to work quickly brings a few benefits.
There is less time for fussing. A small study is created in around 20 minutes.
My way of painting is to pick up a toned board, scrub on a few marks and then
decide where I will take the image. Landscape, seascape or a sky study?
This one seemed to point towards a riverscape as the broad blue stroke in the foreground suggested the edge of water. A few touches of peach, a dash of creamy white and the river was done. The sky carries the same colours and suggests the source of light.
There are no rules...just a little imagination.
Put it on the canvas and leave it.
I can picture myself standing there looking out towards the distant hills.
