                  Tread Gently   OIls on stretched canvas   9 x 12 inches   

The mud flats look calm and lush but there is a warning for the walker...tread gently my friend...the shining surface hides deep pools and soft, slippery ground.

A re-visit to this marsh and mud but on a larger canvas.  Again, I enjoyed the shapes and colours, blending the paint on the support by picking up several colours on my brush.  They have a gentle blend this way rather than mixing them too much on the palette.  

Blues, violets, siennas and yellows.  Mud is very colourful when you look beyond the name.
