I had a longer walk with our dogs along the beach at Hill Head and stopped for short drawings along the way.
West beach near Arundel West Sussex.
Today I’ve been looking at tones with Prussian blue to make the darks. I have been using Phthalo blue for some time but although it makes a great dark I dislike the greenish effect it gives in lighter mixes. So far so good. Had a think about reflection too as the front of our microwave …
Spent some time at the weekend preparing some board for painting. Also made this wet painting carrier from a design idea on Marc Delassio’s blog. I recycled a broken portfolio, but I think it will do!
Due to the poor weather I had to complete these drawings off site. It’s looking a little brighter here this afternoon so I may get out…… (32x47cm and 53x53cm’s respectively are the above sizes)
Dodged some rather heavy showers today in Emsworth to draw a little. Working on a larger drawing now as a follow up….,on the kitchen floor.
Yesterday I got out in the very strong wind for a while to draw in Emswoth. It was a very high tide as it’s also full moon. The path I intended to use was flooded right over with moor hens swimming along it.
