Marsh at Noon   Oils on canvas board  8 x 12 inches  

Layers of texture on the beach and marsh.

Studio Musings...

This painting was created using a canvas board with an underpainting.

I used transparent colours and scrubbed the paint in several directions 
with a brush to make the marks.  After it dried I began teasing out a composition.

The scene is about the many layers of a marsh coastline with sun on the sandbank.

I left the lower foreground underpainting visible with just a few touches of green.
Scraping back the oils reveals more of the underpaint to give another interest.

Here is the underpainting as it was drying...

This image shows the marks left by scrubbing the paint around the board.

  1. Anne, I've been enjoying watching a number of shifts in your painting. Fun for me to see an established painter continuing to evolve—no real surprise there, but at the same time, it IS a surprise to my little pigeon-holing mind! Love that you included the photo of the under painting in this post. Very helpful to have the chance to match that image with your words and thereby get a better sense of your process.
