Seascape, oil on W&N stretched cotton canvas, 14" x 10"
As I mentioned in post No. 59, this is the little version of a larger painting I have been doing for my office (see below). I may add writing to the billboard on the right (on both); it advertises a bar so should enhance the scene but I just wanted to get it done and posted so I can move on to the next one.
We've got sunshine today which is lovely.
Rather than use a lot of words, I'll show you the stages of this painting.
Initial sketch/drawing in pencil, pen and ink
Blocking in the sky and foliage
Blocking in the sea and sand
Painting around the edges
... and the RHS
There are quite a few differences; can you spot them? Who said "One's bigger!"? :D
I have a little bit of fiddly work to do on the larger one, such as the billboard signage, tidying up a small part of the background foliage which I had wiped out and painting a small fence. Whenever I go back to it, I enjoy painting it as it is so big and I feel like I'm actually in the scene.
Have a lovely weekend and happy painting everyone!
