A sunny picture to celebrate the wonderful Easter weather we’ve just had on the North East coast: Cattersty Sands, Skinningrove, one of the nicest beaches around. Golden sand, sand dunes, and remains of the old mine fanhouse on top of the cliff. And yes, I am still experimenting with paints. These are Sennelier Rive Gauche oils. A new range of paints made with safflower oil, these are quicker drying than traditional oil paints, but slower than alkyd oils. That means they give more time for blending, but dry within a few days. Here I limited my palette to the three primary colours (red, blue, yellow) and white, using black for the finishing lines.
This painting is now exhibited in Wold Pottery gallery, Loftus.
