A kind of place.

Barmy Evening   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper   6 x 6 inches   £ 53   $ 70

A warm, gentle evening along the coast.

Studio Musings...

Ten minute study.  
Fast, loose and a few brush strokes tell the tale.

I used Burnt Umber, Prussian Blue, Permanent Rose, 
Lemon Yellow and Titanium White for this 'end of day' piece.

A scrubbing on with the oils gives a rocky appearance
 and the sky is given similar gestural marks to denote evening clouds.

Sky colour is brought down for a suggestion of water.
I like the final flourish of white for the foam as a contrast.
