Sense of Place.
Horseshoe Creek Oils on board 8.5 x 11 inches ON HOLD
I am in my element with abstraction. This creek on the Lincolnshire coast is a favourite subject for me as I love the remoteness of these nature reserves. No visitors in sight...just me and some oil paint.
I chose a soft, muted palette of colour to give a sense of place; gentle colours are found in our landscape as the light can sometimes be 'flat'. It gives me a range of greys (grays) too which are perfect for making a little bit of colour stand out. No need for extremes here.
I think it makes a third in my 'Creek' series to sit with 'Hidden Shore' and 'Several Shades of Grey'.
Loose brush strokes here and plenty of scrubbing on the board for a textured feel. My usual flourish of light to finish....
