#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.

Each one of the three paintings you have done of this area recently has much to offer in the way of composition, atmosphere, individuality and general painting expertise.ReplyDelete
Thank you ebbybow, your lovely comments keep me going, thank you!Delete
Love the atmosphere and play of light in this picture. The reflections work so well. I have attempted these mud flats once a few years ago and I remember how disastrous my rendition was. You may inspire me into having another go. A beautiful painting.ReplyDelete
