seascapes update, work in progress 16th January
I'm still working on the clouds in particular, to try to get that effect of the rays of light and the light peachy sky against the dark clouds. Again it needs to dry before I can glaze and scumble more colour.
Sorry it is on the slant but the paint was wet and caught the light otherwise. This is one that I started some time ago and got to a point where I hated it! I made some changes and it's going much better now. The trouble is it would need a very light room to take a painting this dark. I enjoy trying to catch the light as night falls and the moon is bright, the sea and cliffs inky dark and colours strange. It still has problems to resolve. Sometimes seeing paintings onscreen distances me and makes me see them afresh and really helps resolve 'where next?'.
