#159 'Langstone Mud Flats' 12x12"
The past week or so my time has been dediatcated to the two oil classes I teach. We did a 3 boat seascape,very pleased with how the students managed a tricky subject!
Today I was itching to get out there again, and I managed a weather window before storm Doris blows in.
Beautiful light, I love this place! It's the third painting of this area (numbers 152 & 147)
The contrast of the dark rich flats and light from the sunrise, I can't get enough of!
Keeping the mud interesting and making the really dark areas a little translucent so they're not too heavy. The sky has light, bright thin paint which lift the darks.
Hope to go back in the next few days, I did two quick drawings as well to gather more information for a possible bigger painting later.
