In the mood.
Mood Oils on gessoed watercolour paper 9 x 11 inches
Weather over land and sea.
A second piece on watercolour paper.
Twice gessoed again to give the paper strength.
This piece has been through several changes along the way.
Rubbed down, turned around, back again, and so on...
I was beginning to think it was a waste of time and paint.
Not wanting to be beaten I gave it another shot. This time I wasn't so gentle.
Adding more paint I pushed the oils around.
Making marks and leaving them alone. No fussing.
I now have the effect I was after...moody weather.
