Sunrise, with beautiful soft light on the mountain and deep turquoise blues and apricots of the sea and beach, a wonderful combo :-)
It did the painting in two stages firstly blocked in an approximate colour and tone of each area. When dry did a second layer of thicker paint and more closely observed.
I drew the mountain in pen and ink 4 or 5 times, so when I came to paint this the mountain shape came easily. It was one of those paintings I didn't have to wipe off or redo anything, this doesn't happen often! I'm pleased with the final image.
I love how the emphasise has been placed on the sea, rather than the mountain in this painting unlike the sketch which puts the emphasis on the mountain. I think by doing so Clare has created such a sense of distance from the shore to Table mountain and the colours are stunning. A truly lovely painting.ReplyDelete
