Art on the Rocks.

"Seaweed Green" 15 x 5 inches oil on wood panel £160 framed.Sold.

Having a set time limit to paint what's in front of you, can be one tough challenge, but a good one. Trying to find a new take on a familiar scene is also another good test of your compositional skills.
Down on the rocks looking back up at the Rhenish Tower, through the kelp and sea moss covered posts , proved to be testing indeed.
Laying down , big shapes with thick, heavy colour, is a really pleasing way to work and gets that canvas covered in a very short time.
