Oil on Canvas 70cmx110cm
The old ship bollard on the jetty at Thesen Island was the focus of my painting, ‘The Light in Between’. Yachts at anchor against stormy skies.
I used three main mixes for the painting. Permanent Magenta (Daler-Rowney) and Ultramarine Blue (Malmeri) Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Blue (Lucas) and Permanent Magenta. And, a mix of Indian Yellow (Gamblin) and Quinacridone Magenta (Windsor&Newton Artists Oils). For the highlights I used a mix of Indian Yellow and White, as well as Cerulean Blue and white. The white paint was Utrecht white, a mix of Titanium and Zinc white which has high opacity.
