The weather here is great at the moment. A mixture of intense sunshine and showers. The sort of weather which makes the garden scream for attention and so painting is put on hold for a few days. The sun sets here at 10 pm and darkness falls at about 11 pm. I managed a 2 hour painting after sunset and here it is. Its 14″x10″, the colours are limited as usual, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber and Prussian Blue. As the painting has a rough look to it, when it came to painting the birds I had to resist being too careful with these, as to keep the rough look throughout.
I will post the painting video in a day or two. See you then.
absolutely love this sky. I have been thinking of giving prussian blue a try and this really gets me itching to try it!
It really is an intense colour, worth trying.
Wow its fantastic. .if I dint see the word painting I would have assumed it to be a photo. So real!!!!
This is so beautiful! Great painting.
Beautifully done!!! Great work especially on the sea and sky. Perfectly balanced! Those fleeting birds are also a very nice touch.
