Insomnia has its drawbacks but also its benefits. Up at 4am this morning, I gravitated to the studio and once some coffee did its work, I decided to do some painting.
This is the grisaille start of a small boat. The palette is mostly Caribbean Blue, Payne's Grey and white and in oils. Its at the point where I need to let it dry for a few days before adding more paint. Its 10" x 10" on canvas panel.
The colour and monotone reminds me of dreams. Hazy and not quite formed and always a little unsettling, making you ask questions of why, where, and how.
