Across the beach, Mawgan Porth 14 inches square, oil on canvas paper
A sketch in oil paint done from our window in Cornwall, looking across the beach as the tide was coming in.
Done using Griffin Alkyd oil paints - I really like these for plein air sketching as they dry faster. It was done in a Cryla sketch pad - Cryla pads have a canvas like texture and are designed for acrylics but are just as good for oil paints.
At the moment I'm working long hours so painting time is really limited :( I need some of Maggie Stiefvaters organisational and time management skills. I'm sadly lacking in both :(
