I've put the bones into place for a new water piece called Landwash.
This is done from life studies and images taken at Middle Cove, watching sedate waves washing ashore instead of the usual wild Atlantic breakers. The bright sun on the crest of the wave makes the piece look as if its made of glass or ice - water frozen in time.
There's a lot of water to block in with fairly neutral blue greys, then comes the fun of creating the water surface. This could take awhile...
The piece is 12 x 36" and in acrylics.
