update on seascapes, work in progress
The paintings are coming along but are too wet to photograph properly :(
This 40 inch canvas is almost done, I just want to bring more of the blue in the sky into the sea and foreground - just a little - and do some more spray on the waves.
The colours haven't come out very well - the underside of the waves is more viridian rather than the turquoise it looks here.
I'm still too close to it to maybe judge impartially but it is making me feel the tumult and confusion of the waves as I walked along at the waters edge - I don't know if it's apparent to others though? From this low viewpoint, the horizon was a mass of incoming swells, not the straight line of an east coast painting. There was an intense feeling of the weight and power of the water pounding towards me and I wanted to catch that feeling.
I haven't a clue what to call it - I hate choosing titles!
My studio wall needs painting too! oh dear, all those splashes of paint.
