A quick post for a quick painting. 9″ x 12″ in size and using only 3 colours plus black and white. This scene is beyond the woods, in what is called ‘marginal land’, prone to flooding and quite useless as farm land. I’ve been here before, this time last year, and I have a painting from that time (here) from a different viewpoint. It is nearly twice as big as this little picture, and the funny thing is, it took as long to paint this one. I must be getting old.
The colours this time are Burnt Sienna (red), Yellow Ochre (yellow) and French Ultramarine (blue), plus black and white. Cobalt Blue and Cerulean Blue were used the last time instead of French Ultramarine. I’m enjoying packing loads of quirky stuff into these little paintings, oh! so that’s why its taking me so long to paint them (yeah!).
I’ll have the video of the painting process for the next post and I might also have more time to waffle on. See you then.
