Weather over the shore Oils on canvas board 10 x 12 inches
This seascape has an experimental frame.
I had a cream frame to fit this painting but wanted to do something different.
I painted three coats of oils on the outside...
black, burnt umber and some permanent rose.
When it was nearly dry I rubbed it down with soft paper towels.
The inner slip was painted light grey,green,blue.
Then I rubbed most of this off. It revealed a worn, cream appearance.
The effect was quite surprising. It has a weathered look
I think it fits in quite well with the beach scene.
I might try it again.
