I liked the way the sea is a deeper colour, and waves come crashing over the rock ledge and over into the shallower rock shelf.
I do love these rock water combos, and because it’s where I walk every day, I like to observe the colours and try to use those in my paintings.
This painting is done in acrylic but I’ve used a touch of black line as well. It’s based on an original sketch which I keep going back for it’s composition, and using on different sized canvases. So in fact a hint of my sketch technique is being used along with the paint.
The size is 18 X 24 inches and the paint goes right round the edges. It is on the wall in the Studio along with 9 other paintings in similar but not the same style. Make sense?
Here is another acrylic painting, with a touch of line.
This one is based on a sketch I did one morning last summer, at about 5.30am. The morning colours are so gorgeous and subtle. The yachts do stay in the cove overnight quite a lot in the summer, so at this time of morning they are darker with the sun behind them.
I like the soft creams, lilacs, avocado greens and smokey blues. And a hint of pink.
This one is on a 12 inch square canvas and the colour stops to create a visual border.
Most of these new ones are on my ‘Shop’ if you would like to see them. They make quite a change in the Studio too.
