The second slim tonal study.
They have been fun to paint with a large brush.
I began with a white gessoed ground which gave the light effect.
Burnt sienna and Winsor Lemon make a good mix for this.
The large brush prevents a tight painting and pushing
the oils around in a scrubbing motion creates the abstracted shapes.
A few swift flourishes to finish depicts the light and sparkle on the surface.
It is important not to be heavy handed.
This would make a stripe rather than broken paint.
