Hot off the easel, here's today's painting.
It's a big one, on a beautiful smooth linen portrait canvas. I wanted to try and get as much colour and texture as I could into this image of a winter hillside in Argyll, near the Rest and Be Thankful.
Here it is part way through, with the main forms blocked in. As you can see, I've used a pink ground as a mid-tone.
Here's my palette with the colours mixed. You can also see the brushes and the palette knife I used.
Here's the finished painting!
