Weather forecast says light cloud – but it still looks dark and gloomy out there. I have spent the morning in the studio working up compositions from colour sketches, drawings and photos. If the composition is right the painting will almost “paint itself”. If not I have often resorted to sawing bits off the panel until it works. These paintings have all had this treatment!
Looking at these images I notice that the camera is often not very forgiving. There are a few edges than need softening – something I’ll watch out for in the future.
