The Crowns Botallack virtually completed and a sketchy start on Runswick Bay, mixed media on canvas

A sketchy start to the third one - again on 20 x 16 inch canvas - this time it's Runswick Bay, Yorkshire, a lovely, tiny little place.

I think I'm going to do this one as a limited palette piece and may/may not incorporate collage - not sure yet. Icy blues and earth tones I think.

Below is the almost complete Crowns at Botallack photographed in daylight. It still doesn't show the colours in the sea well :>( but maybe it picks up the greeny turquoise slightly better around the rocks.

What pretty greens on The Crowns.

I think a limited palette can be so powerful. I look forward to seeing your progress.

thanks :>)

I agree a limited palette can be really interesting and the north sea is such different colours from the sea of Norfolk or Cornwall

your avatar makes me smile :>)
