Saltmarsh update - mixed media experiment
This is where the canvas now is.
I've sent that middle building back a bit, changed the colour of the border from a turquoise based blue to a mauvey one and introduced that into the painting.
I've brought the light colour into the sky to silhouette the trees.
I've collage a little more texture into the sand with tissue paper.
I've flicked little bits of paint for gravel and leaves.
I've worked on the way your eye follows the lines of the wet mud/sand etc through and up.
You can see stages and close ups below:
I won't be able to work on it for a couple of days now as I'm teaching extra hours, so it can sit on my desk while I think about where next.
