First lights.

Sunrise   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper   10 x 12 inches  On Hold for Exhibition

A sunlit shore.  Early morning light.

Studio Musings...

A second painting which had a radical re-work. 
 This time I wanted to add more life to the scene.

It can be a risky business destroying parts of a painting to create a new piece.
However, there is no room for fear as the only way is to get on with it.

 I can easily ruin a painting by adding paint over paint and overworking it into mud.
This piece was scraped back several times before I saw some progress. 

Abstracted marks, paint skimmed across the surface and highlights from the sun
began to bring the painting to life.  No need to worry, a new work is born.
