small seascape sketches

Stormy Evening copyright Vivien Blackburn

Looking through a sketch book I found these 2 unfinished works and finished them off - they are both mixed media (containing everything but the kitchen sink!).

This one is earlier in the day, the clouds starting to build up.




Those unfinished long seascapes on canvas are still sitting waiting to be finished off but I've been busy with other non-painting stuff :( .

I always enjoy your seascapes Vivian.
Having lived near the sea at one time, I really respect your color choices, as I've seen them all at one time or another.
I miss being there, this brings it back, thanks!
