Obsessed, me thinks.

Okay, it's another painting of the ocean!  To be honest I don't think it will be the last, as I'm in the middle a flow.   Thanks to Andrew S. for his inspiring photograph that I based this picture on.

Solitary walk 9x12" Oil on stretch canvas S.Beamish  SOLD

My paint pallet was ultramarine blue, viridian green, cad' yellow light, cad' red, titanium, raw sienna and raw umber.  I painted this piece by laying in cool colours where there were shadows and warm colours where there was light.  I then worked the contrasts in, aiming to keep it very loose.  I used the brush and then the pallet knife.

Funny thing is, it isn't even dry and the first person to see it bought it!
