Sunset on Frozen Lakes Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches SOLD
A great deal of painterly licence has been employed in this little study. And why not? This is what paint is for. To enable the painter to put a personal stamp on the work.
I love sculpting the oil paint with brush and knife. A flourish here and a scrape there.
It sounds so easy...however, this can be far from the truth as scraping in a different sense happens more times than I care to mention. It would be tempting to abandon the work but I am known for my determination. This painting went through three lots of remedial work...tonking, scraping, wiping and finally......something went right and I called it a day.
Time for supper.
