I had a longer walk with our dogs along the beach at Hill Head and stopped for short drawings along the way.
Month: November 2014
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.
