I am loving these thin, wide boards.
They are easy to paint on with a large brush and a scrubbing movement.
Starting with a mix of dark transparent colour the foreground is set.
Sometimes I have a clear idea of the journey the piece will take and this was
destined to be a seascape. Ebb tide gives me the chance to make marks about standing pools of water and raised sandbanks. A single flourish with loaded brush completes.
