Contrasts.


Lincolnshire Storm  Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches  £ 50

Sudden showers and sunny intervals.
Gathering storm clouds over a Lincolnshire field.


Studio Musings...

I like a little drama in my work and the April weather gives me plenty.

The bright lemon yellow of oilseed rape is seen across the county.
When stormy purple skies oblige, a painter must paint.


Work in progress...


Soft Light  Oils on canvas board  16 x 20 inches



Here is a piece of work about light on the salt marshes.
Mostly about greens and blues I added other colours to lift the mood.

Touches of purple and sienna make the painting come to life.

Now the board is dry I think I will leave it apart from using a darker glaze 
  of transparent Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue in parts of the foreground. 
 This will strengthen the composition, add weight and a little warmth.
