-  Messing About with Paint   -  Beyond

Oil on Canvas 30cmx120cm.

Sold off the easel. Special

Composition constrained by the long thin canvas, inspired by a photo taken by Berand of a yacht going through the Heads.

Too many conflicting ideas in my head about how to make the painting work. The narrow canvas to restrictive for the brooding skies I started with and the grey-blue pallet too flat.

A bit of blood on my knuckles after the fight.
